Shrine mont Parish WEekend

April 26-28, 2019!

Registration for the 2019 Parish Weekend is full, but feel free to email to be added to the wait list!

Our annual Shrine Mont retreat is a great chance to take a break form your busy life and relax and get to know other members of our Saint George's community.



Do you want to help make our Shrine Mont retreat a success?

Want to help advertise for our Shrine Mont retreat? Or manage registration for the retreat? Help plan music, or activities for the weekend? Rather then having 2 or 3 people in charge of the whole retreat, we're seeking "subchairs"-with specific and time limited tasks-to help plan our Shrine Mont parish retreat. Many of these jobs are before the weekend (so you don't have to do anything the weekend of the retreat!) Interested in helping? For details of the various subchair roles, see below. Questions? Speak to Elena Keydel, Shrine Mont Retreat Chair,


During January, February and March oversee advertising for Shrine Mont. This includes Announcements, Dragonbytes and the Bulletin. You’ll work with the Registration co-chair to determine timing and how many spaces are left. 


During January, set up with registration website and work with Joel to get it on the website.. During February and March oversee online registration to make sure we don’t overbook.

First Timers- You’re in charge of making sure First Timer’s to the retreat feel welcome and have their questions answered. You’ll check in with these folks through out the weekend and make sure they understand the schedule and where things are.
