Deacon Charles Ridulph was given special recognition at the annual Harold Schmidt Walk for Seniors by Christian Ministries, on Sept. 29 at Walcamp Ministry and Retreat Center in Kingston.
The event marked Ridulph’s last day before retiring from his role as director of Christian Ministries. He will continue on staff at St. John Lutheran Church in Sycamore and at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hampshire.
Ridulph and the late Rev. E. George Krause were the founders of Christian Ministries, a dynamic ministry to seniors and people with disabilities who live in local nursing homes and senior living centers.
Ridulph has served as director since the ministry’s founding in 2000.
