The Episcopal Mission Center & St. Margaret's House

The Episcopal Mission Center (EMC) is a social justice and retreat facility located on St. Luke's campus in Germantown. The EMC seeks to instill missional living through authentic experience of urban ministry. We actively live out the 5 Marks of Mission of the Episcopal Church while valuing an ecumenical partnership with various peoples of backgrounds and faiths.​

Groups will get an opportunity to work with their peers and forge the kind of unbreakable bonds that can only be made through the spiritual journey of service. While here, groups will work alongside our EMC team who will guide them in service projects and camp activities, as well as offer a new perspective into what it means to dedicate yourself to serving God and their community. Groups will also work with our EMC Service Site Partners, service organizations throughout the city committed to social justice in diverse and in-depth ways.

The EMC is housed in St. Margaret's House, which is also available to host single day/overnight retreats in addition to week-long guided mission retreats and accommodations for groups visiting Philadelphia.
