St. Columba's Episcopal Church

Learning about St. C’s and the Episcopal Church

Inclement Weather Policy

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.

Whether you are new to the area or just to St. Columba’s, whether you are familiar with the Episcopal Church or have never attended church before, we know it can be a challenge to make your way into a new faith community. That’s why we offer two classes designed to help you feel at home:

Tour and Talk is a drop-in, question-and-answer session for you to learn more about life and faith at St. Columba’s. It is offered on the second Sunday of each month, September through May, at 10:15 am; June through August at 10 am. This session meets at the Welcome table in the Common.

St. Columba’s Newcomer Class is a class led by the clergy and offered in the fall and spring. Its purpose is to strengthen people’s connections with their faith and with our parish community by providing newcomers or anyone interested with an introduction to the Christian faith and Episcopal tradition and the ways both are lived out at St. Columba’s. Contact our Welcome team for the date, time and location of upcoming sessions.
