Prison Ministry

Our parish has a productive and fruitful relationship with the county correctional facility. Groups of trained volunteers separately serve the male and female population by offering instruction and guidance in Church matters and Bible study.  A Prayer service and distribution of the Eucharist is done by the Deacon; Mass is celebrated once a month by the pastor of St. Vincent’s. People with a variety of skills, including communication and teaching, worship and music, as well as spiritual counseling, are encouraged to offer their skills.  Volunteers must be certified by the County for access to the prison. Currently, programs are offered on:

Fridays:   4:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Sundays:  1:30 – 3:00 p.m.
