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!

Today we celebrate the ministries of Shrine Mont Summer Camps! Look around and see all the t-shirts. If you are new to the parish and have school age children, be sure to ask anyone in a t-shirt to tell you about their camp experience. Words used to describe camp at Shrine Mont are “home away from home, my happy place, the place I feel loved and accepted, closest to God” and so many, many more. Michael Reed, son of Jean and Lucy Lee, will be the newest director of MAD (Music and Arts and Drama) Camp. He is here today and will be happy to answer any questions about MAD Camp or any other of the camps available this summer. In addition, Jenni Faires spent two weeks as a Chaplain last summer at St. George’s III and Jay Legere is a wealth of knowledge of all things camp. Feel free to contact Jenni at jenni.faires@gracealex.org or jay.legere@gracealex.org if you would like more information or specifics.
