Shrine Mont: Our diocesan cathedral
CLICK HERE for the Shrine Mont website
Within our Beckford Parish/Shenandoah County boundaries, we are blessed to have another Episcopal Church landmark: SHRINE MONT, a mountain conference and retreat center located in Orkney Springs, Virginia. Our churches often hold parish picnics and other special events there, and many of our young people have enjoyed the various summer camps.
Shrine Mont is home to the Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration, the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. From workshops, conferences and music festivals, to family reunions and family vacations, parish weekends or an individual retreat, Shrine Mont can accommodate over 500 guests and is a great destination year around! Our churches often gather at Shrine Mont for parish picnics or other events.
