St. Columba's Episcopal Church

What Are Sacraments and Rites?

Celebration of the Eucharist: Presider's back, candle and altar.

Our worship expresses the belief that Christ has united us to himself. We are members of his Body, and he lives and acts in, among and through us. The Church’s sacraments and rites express this faith in Christ’s living presence through actions, words and symbols, which are “outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace.” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 857) All are welcome to join us in worship, wherever they are on their own spiritual path.
