St. Columba's 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.

At St. Columba’s, we take seriously a commitment to making our facilities and activities accessible to people of all abilities—from our youngest members on up.

St. Columba’s offers support for people with disabilities, including large-print worship materials, listening enhancement devices and wheelchair accessible seating. Ushers are happy to assist you with these support services. Accessible parking and building access are available; see our building maps for details.

Our playground provides a range of options for children so that all can have a rich outdoor experience no matter their skills or abilities. Our Children’s Ministries work with those who have special needs (and their families) to ensure that they have the necessary support to participate fully in our worship and community life. And the St. Columba's Nursery School incorporates into its very mission the principle of inclusion and the celebration of each person’s God-given and unique abilities.
