There are retreats planned throughout the church year for parish members. Our very popular annual all-parish retreat is a fun-filled family June weekend at Shrine Mont. Shrine Mont is the Episcopal Church retreat in Orkney Springs, Virginia and includes the Virginia House. This lodge is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was purchased by Shrine Mont in 1979. With its white clapboard structure and tall, green-shuttered windows, this is a beautiful, peaceful place to recharge with your family and fellow parishioners. There are many family-oriented activities available, casual meals, entertainment provided by talented church members as well as opportunities for worship, all in the peaceful Blue Ridge Mountains setting.
