St. Columba’s welcomes inquiries concerning baptisms, weddings, and funerals. These so-called “Occasional Offices” are, of course, always available to members of the congregation. But they often create an opportunity for those who are not parishioners to find a new church home with us.
Parents often see the birth of a child
as a time to connect, or reconnect, with the church, and to establish a
spiritual base for their family.
The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage is a sacramental service that takes place within the community of the Church. Normally, membership in the Church precedes a wedding. But we do recognize that a wedding might be the beginning of a relationship with St. Columba’s and the Episcopal Church, and we welcome inquiries from any person, parishioner or not, divorced or not. To learn more, visit our Wedding Guidelines page or contact Donna Nedderman, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Parish Office (847-5571) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Columba’s can provide a place to rest and reflect on the presence of God in a traumatic and grief-filled time. Our witness to the resurrected Lord is a source of hope and strength. Usually the funeral director will contact St. Columba’s to discuss arrangements. (There is very little space left in the churchyard for interments.) For more information, please contact the Parish Office at 847-5571.
