Mark your calendars now for the annual parish retreat at Shrine Mont on September 10-12, 2021!
Planning is in progress to gather in person for a fun and relaxing weekend in Orkney Springs, VA. Our theme this year is “Jesus calls us o’er the tumult,” which is the first line of hymn #550 in the 1982 hymnal. The Cambridge English dictionary defines “tumult” as “a state of confusion, disorder, or uncertainty.” The idea of Jesus calling us over and out of such a state speaks for itself in its power to pull us back into some semblance of order.
The Shrine Mont coordinators and committees are busy planning activities*, worship, meals, and more. At this time the plan is to hold an in-person gathering; however, we are planning for all contingencies. Registration and additional details will be available very soon!
* If you have any spare wine corks you’ve accumulated, please save them to donate for use in an activity to-be-named later.
Registration is now open. Click here to register online, or register in person at coffee hour on Sunday morning.
