St. MIchael's Shrine Mont Weekend Registration Open
Please join us for St. Michael's annual weekend at Shrine Mont from September 15-17, 2023. Shrine Mont is a great time for all ages! Shrine Mont offers a place for contemplation and renewal at the Great North Mountain in the Shenandoah Valley.
Officially, Shrine Mont is the Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration and a Conference Center of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. The outdoor shrine is actually the Cathedral of the Diocese of Virginia. Shrine Mont is located 110 miles from St. Michael’s in Orkney Springs, VA.
