Annual Parish Events
Each year in the Fall we host a block party in hopes of getting to know our neighbors better! This year, kids enjoyed a moon bounce, face painting, and pumpkin painting. All ages devoured the delicious BBQ and homemade baked goods. Jim Thorne and the Moondiggers and Sur Andes provided wonderful entertainment. We exceeded our goal of donations made to the INOVA blood drive!

Shrine Mont Parish Weekends
Each year in September, St. Michael's holds a retreat weekend at Shrine Mont, or as it is more formally known, the Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration and Conference Center of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia.
Located in Orkney Springs, Virginia, Shrine Mont has become for generations of Virginia Episcopalians a wonderful place to relax and refresh both the body and spirit.
St. Michael's parish retreats feature programs of study and discussion, legendary meals, evening fun activities, a concluding service in the outdoor Shrine, and much free time for reading, hiking, knitting, and otherwise enjoying a peaceful time together.
Shrine Mont also is the site of a number of summer camps and youth conferences sponsored by the Diocese. Many of St. Michael's young people have enjoyed these programs over the years, and have come away with lifelong memories of fun and growth at Shrine Mont.
