St. George’s 2021 Parish Retreat
Update: September 1, 2021
After much prayer and conversation with the good folks at Shrine Mont, we have decided to proceed with our weekend in the mountains, in a different way than we have gathered in the past.
We will not offer programming, but there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature and catch up with each other.
If you previously registered for Shrine Mont, you should have received an email with more information. If you would like to register for our October 8-10 weekend away, please submit a registration form and full payment no later than September 8, 2021
October 8 – 10, 2021
Shrine Mont is a place where people are more important than things; where prayer and reflection, rest and recreation are more important than appointments and tasks. Shrine Mont is where we connect as a community and finally have time to meet each other, laugh together, and share stories of difficult commutes and…set life down for awhile. Shrine Mont is a place where kids play out in God’s own creation and we all give thanks for streams and flowers and ponds full of fish. Shrine Mont is marshmallows and memories—a place where we celebrate being part of the family of God.
The Shrine Mont retreat facility is owned and operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Lodging is in a quaint old hotel and nearby cottages, all with private baths. Meals are served in the large dining room of Virginia House, the main conference facility. Tips are appreciated by the dining room staff.
Free time activities
Shrine Mont has something for everyone – unless you are looking for a TV! Activities include fishing, hiking, porch sitting, sleeping, playing music with friends, crafts, reading, playing bridge, hayrides, games, wading in the lake.
Also…Scholarships are available to any parishioner; please speak to any of our clergy. Funding requests will be held in confidence. Sharing and receiving are nurturing elements in our Community growth—if resources permit, consider contributing to our scholarship fund. Donations will be cheerfully accepted and greatly appreciated.
