Discover the gift of generosity...
Throughout the year, Emrich Retreat Center relies on tax-deductible, charitable gifts to fulfill its mission of providing a spiritual, natural and peaceful space for spiritual growth.
The Emrich Retreat Center at Parishfield receives no direct financial support from the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan. Emrich is responsible for paying its staff, utilities, and all other associated operating costs. Most other retreat centers are subsidized in full or in part by their governing body. Because Emrich is mandated to be self-sustaining, we need your help. If you agree that having a place for spiritual retreat and renewal is essential, please give generously!
Also, if you would like to include Emrich in your estate plans, we can show you how. Please contact Mark Milioto at the Diocese of Michigan.
Carved in stone...Grounded in love
Our Carved in Stone: Grounded in Love Campaign adds a permanent space to memorialize loved ones, celebrate joyous occasions, or to honor family and friends.
Located at the heart of the Emrich Retreat Center our Circle of Reflection offers a unique space to pray, journal, reflect or to simply enjoy the 100+ year old trees that surround you on every side.
Your brick will be a visible testament for generations to come and will help support the ongoing ministry of hospitality and spirituality at the Emrich. Brick by brick we are adding to the legacy of past generations by enhancing the natural beauty, tranquility and spirituality of the Emrich Retreat Center.
