Shrine Mont Parish Weekend

Each year Christ Church heads to Shrine Mont, the Diocese of Virginia's camp and conference center in Orkney Springs, Virginia, for fellowship, relaxing together, prayer, and lots of fun.

What is Shrine Mont?

  • A place to get away, nestled in the Shenandoah mountains, two and one-half hours from Alexandria.
  • A place for hiking, pond fishing, bonfire, and porch sitting. A place to be active or quiet.
  • A place to get to know other parishioners and to rekindle friendships.
  • A place where cell phone reception is low and you can relax.
  • A place for worship of God under the highest ceiling of any cathedral in the world.
  • A place for children of God of all ages!  A place for singles, couples, and families.

2020 Event Plan: It’s on…for August 

In light of the impacts of the novel coronavirus, notably limitations on public gatherings and uncertainty regarding how and when Virginia will “reopen for business,” the Christ Church Parish Weekend has been moved from June to the weekend of August 21-23.

When we make it to “the place apart” this year, it will no doubt be unlike any other. Shrine Mont intends to follow CDC guidelines in helping plan activities, housing, meals and other elements considering the health and safety of attendees.
