Dinners for Eight
Each month, members of the parish gather for small dinner parties. This is a fun and informal way to get to know the members of the parish, enjoy conversation, and share a meal together.
The date of the dinner is subject to change each month, but are always held on a Saturday night.
Please watch the Sunday Bulletin for an announcement or check the Calendar tab at the top of this page.
Email Nancy Councilor or add your name to the paper sign-up sheet at the coffee hour after the Sunday services. Please also indicate if you are interested in hosting one of the dinners.
These dinners are organized by Nancy Councilor of the Parish Life Committee.

Shrine Mont Annual Family Retreat
Each October, the parish offers a family retreat to the Shrine Mont retreat center in the Shenandoah Mountains.
This is a chance to meet and spend time with the members of the parish and your family, and relax and reflect in the peace and beauty of the mountains.
Activities include a bonfire with s’mores and a sing-along, hiking, star-gazing, zip-lining, golf, board games, and family-style meals.
Each year, a guest speaker enlightens our understanding of a specific thematic topic while supervised activities are provided for children.
