Come join us for 48 hours of monastic living in the spirit of Brother Lawrence — who found the presence of God in the simple tasks of cleaning.
Brother Lawrence Retreat: Tuesday, July 17, 5:30 p.m. – Thursday, July 19, 4:00 p.m.
You will follow the normal rhythm of life at Richmond Hill — including daily prayers, time for reflective work, meals together, and a comfortable place to sleep. Between prayers in the Monte Maria chapel, you can prayerfully participate in simple tasks to help with our summer cleaning: sweep the kitchen floor, wash the refectory windows, dust the woodwork in the cloister. There is no cost for this retreat. Your service to Richmond Hill will cover your room and board while with us.
The retreat begins with Community Worship on Tuesday evening and concludes at 4 PM on Thursday.
