Apply now for RUAH Program

Richmond Hill will begin a new weekday session of the RUAH School of Spiritual Guidance in September, 2018. This weekday design is particularly intended to make the program available to clergy and other church professionals for whom Sunday classes are impossible.

The two-year program is composed of two 48-hour retreats and eight 24-hour retreats for each of two years. The 24-hour retreats are held on the third Thursday evening and Friday each month; the 48-hour retreats extend from Wednesday supper through Friday. The program consists of monthly retreats in the context of the rhythm of life of the Richmond Hill Community. Prayer and faith sharing are a part of the discipline of all participants. One book is assigned each month on the upcoming  topic.

Acceptance in RUAH XVII is primarily limited to clergy and church professionals. If you are interested in this program, please inquire immediately to the Rev. Janie Walker, Co-Pastoral Director of Richmond Hill. The deadline for applications is May 1st.

Some scholarship assistance is available.

For more information or an application, please contact Rev. Janie Walker, Co-pastoral Director, at Richmond Hill. (804)783-7903 or email:
