“All  guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (The Rule of St. Benedict)

Who are the Nights of Columba?

The Nights of Columba is a ministry of welcome and watching. The Nights make sure that visitors—parishioners and non–parishioners alike—are welcomed to the church building and that the facility is secure in the evening.

What does a Night do?

Once every six weeks, on a regularly scheduled weekday evening, one of us sits at the desk at the 2nd-floor Albemarle Street entrance. The Night welcomes guests and, as needed, answers questions and gives directions. The Night also makes a check of the building to make sure that all doors and windows that are supposed to be secured are secured.

Why should I become a Night?

Being a Night is easy and enjoyable. It gives you a chance to spend a quiet evening greeting old friends, making new ones and, in between, working, reading, writing, meditating, praying, day dreaming or doing anything else you might feel like doing sitting at a desk. Wireless access is now available throughout the building (but not in the church nave). Most importantly, it gives you a chance, as a minister of St. Columba's, to welcome people to St. Columba's, and to take care of the church that takes care of us.

If you’re here some weekday evening for any of our many activities, please come say hello. We’re here to help!
