"In accordance with Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-21 requiring businesses to suspend non-essential in-person operations until April 13, The Hermitage will be closed until then. Outdoor activities are permitted, provided you abide by personal distance practices and The Hermitage grounds remain open for your refuge to wander the trails, pray with the labyrinth, or build a fire in the firepit. Please consult with David, Naomi, or June if you have previously scheduled spiritual direction sessions scheduled. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you all back in the future. Blessings to you during this time of uncertainty."
