In support of growing eagerness and impatience of many to gather anew, and respecting the options for phased reopening set forth by our mayor and bishop, St. Columba's proposes the following plan for re-opening our church, while prioritizing health and safety for the greatest number of people.

St. Columba's is launching a new worship opportunity, and we'd love for you to be involved! Very simply, the new initiative is to ask members of the parish to host small groups for prayer and fellowship in their backyard. Visit our new House Churches webpage to learn how you may engage in this small group worship.

Through our Baptismal Covenant we have promised that "with God’s help, we will persevere in resisting evil, will seek and serve Christ in all persons, strive for justice, and respect the dignity of every human being." As the sin of racism bleeds through our lives, we believe that we should fundamentally commit ourselves and the church to stand against racism of every kind.
