There are events throughout the year that bring parishioners together, a chance to get to know others better and just have fun. During the summer months, we hold a series of "Grill & Chills" where we just get together in the back yard and fire up the grill. No agenda. Our youth group hosts a pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday each year. A few times a year, we have community breakfasts on a Sunday morning, enjoying a hearty breakfast between services. In addition to parish-wide events, we also have small groups that gather for fellowship and fun throughout the year.
We have an active Youth Group for kids 6th-12th grade that meets every other week on Sunday evenings and at other times for special events.
OWLS (older, wiser, laughing souls) meets every other month on a Thursday for a brown bag lunch and program on a variety of topics chosen by the group.
Single Purpose is a joint ministry of the Church of the Holy Cross and St. Anne’s, Reston is primarily a social group—not a dating service—for adults of all ages in the North Fairfax region of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and their friends who, for whatever reason, find themselves walking solo on their spiritual path.
Outings are scheduled on an occasional basis throughout the year.
Holy Cross Women
Holy Cross Women get together for occasional activities and for an annual retreat to Shrine Mont, the Diocese of Virginia retreat center in central Virginia.
