St. Columba’s is located in Washington, DC at 4201 Albemarle Street NW, one block west of Wisconsin Avenue and just north of the intersection of Wisconsin and Nebraska avenues (Tenley Circle). We are two plus miles north of Washington National Cathedral and approximately one mile south of the Maryland/District line.
To get to St. Columba’s by Metro, take the Red Line to the Tenleytown/AU station. Use the west exit, and head south on Wisconsin Avenue. Turn right onto Albemarle Street and walk one block to the church.
The parish has a parking lot located on Butterworth Place. This lot is reserved for use by church and nursery school staff from Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. Evenings and weekends, parishioners may park in the lot while attending church events.
When parking on the street, please observe the signs that indicate where you may and may not park—and for how long. The city is diligent about writing tickets.
On Sundays, there is an accessible drop-off/pick-up area designated on 42nd Street. We also have three designated handicapped parking spaces in the church lot on Butterworth Place. On Sundays only, accessibility from the parking lot is through the Nursery School entrance on the ground floor. There is an elevator at the end of that hall. The Church Nave has two designated spaces for wheelchair use. An usher can guide you to them.
