The St. C’s communications department is implementing a new procedure for submitting publicity requests, to streamline the speed, accuracy and effort required to produce our weekly publications. The new online publicity request form is easy to fill out and will provide us with all the necessary information we need to process your request.
For the most up-to-date information on scheduled activities, please call the parish office at 202-363-4119. If the automated attendant answers the phone, select option 9.
During periods of inclement weather, a liberal leave policy will be in effect for staff. So, while the parish may be open, individual activities, meetings, etc. may still be cancelled due to a staff member’s inability to get safely to the church. It’s best to call the parish office for current information.
On weekdays, St. Columba’s follows the DC Public Schools. If they are closed, the parish is closed and all activities are cancelled (same for delayed openings). All activities scheduled before the delayed opening time are cancelled. All activities beginning after the delayed opening time will occur as scheduled.
On Sundays, while individual activities (Forum, Sunday School, meetings, etc.) might be canceled, worship services will occur as scheduled (except in very extreme conditions) and parishioners are asked to use their best judgment as to whether they can safely get to church. Call for the most up-to-date operational information.

“All who hunger gather gladly.”
Those words from a favorite hymn say something about who we are at St. Columba’s. We gather because we yearn to be fed. Our community is built around a holy table where we are nurtured, challenged and transformed in Christ. We are then sent out in loving service to God’s creation.
We are a “come as you are” kind of church where children are cherished and all are welcome. No exceptions. We do our best to sing with gladness, support one another and challenge the cynicism of our culture.
The table is set and there is a place for you.
