There are retreats planned throughout the church year for parish members. Our most popular retreat is a fun-filled family weekend at Shrine Mont in June. In addition to our Shrine Mont Family Retreat, for the past four years, St. Paul’s arranged retreats for the women of St. Paul’s, Ivy and the Centering Prayer Group. The Men’s Group participates in a working weekend retreat at Shine Mont annually. And, there are occasional spiritual retreats for any parish member to the National Cathedral in Washington, DC and a number of events for our youth such as Nightwatch in at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York.
For more information on family, youth or adult retreats, contact the church office.
Join fellow parishioners from June 14 to 16, 2013 at Shrine Mont in glorious Orkney Springs, just an hour and a half from Ivy. Shrine Mont is indeed “a place apart” and literally offers something for everyone. The weekend begins Friday evening with a cookout followed by fellowship around a campfire. Adults may attend a stimulating educational program on Saturday while the children enjoy supervised play outdoors. If you prefer, just sit on the porch and read, or go fishing and later join the group for a hike; you may take part in as many or as few of the program activities as you like. The St. Paul’s group stays in the coveted cottages, nestled on the hillside near the beautiful Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration. Most rooms have private baths and we take care to place singles, couples and families in comfortable and suitable surroundings. The weekend includes plenty of fellowship and popular home cooked meals served family-style. Registration forms will be available May 5th in the rear of the church or on our website.
