We live our mission through worship, in which lay adults, children and youth participate alongside our clergy.  Traditional, life-giving Eucharistic liturgy and fine music are hallmarks of worship at our parish, and we have weekly services in both English and Spanish.  We create a joyful community with a harvest of fellowship activities and events for all ages.  We empower and serve others through vital ministries, particularly around feeding the hungry.  Please explore our website to get to know us or, better yet, come visit!

“Jesus calls us o’er the tumult”: Shrine Mont 2021

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.
