Since March 20, 2017 Our priest and volunteers have gone every week and set up a full Eucharist service in the jail. Men and women prisoners alternate weeks that they come. As many as 15 men and 8 women have been served in this outreach ministry.
The volunteers give their time to be present and listen to the prisoners, with non-judgmental ears. We read Scriptures, have a conversation about them, and break bread together. As several volunteers say commonly, “I get more out of this than they do.” These volunteers exemplify the Scripture that when we visit the prisoner, we are visiting Christ himself.
