Tri-Diocesan Council on Aging Fall Camp

Fall Camp is a four-day adult conference sponsored by the Tri-Diocesan Council on Aging, which represents the three Episcopal dioceses in Virginia. Fall Camp is held each year in late October and is an opportunity to spend time in the mountains of Virginia with other seniors (but we don’t have an age limit) from across the Commonwealth and from other states.

The Camp is an attempt to take seriously the spiritual needs and journeys primarily of retired people. We attempt to challenge participants through keynote speakers, workshops, worship, and interaction with one another. In addition to the scheduled activities, there is plenty of time to sit on porches, visit with friends, relax, enjoy the amazing scenery, and to explore the surrounding area.

October 23-26

At Shrine Mont Conference Center 
The 2023 speaker will be noted author Diana Butler Bass.

Aging is Changing – a congregational resource

A fivepart program designed to be incorporated into the life of congregations. Prepared by the Episcopal Church Office for Lifelong Christian Formation and the Executive Council Taskforce on Older Adult Ministries, Aging is Changing was developed to help clergy and lay leaders identify issues of older adults, their families, and caregivers, and to identify existing local, state and national resources that might be helpful. It also includes best practices from 60 congregations around the Episcopal Church.
