Jail and Prison Ministry Chaplains, Volunteers Gather in Sacramento

February 18, 2016

Diocese of Sacramento – Some 100 volunteers and chaplains from Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and Solano counties, as well as state prison chaplains and volunteers, participated in a training workshop last week. The event provided an opportunity to affirm an overall vision for the ministry and also to spend time in county break-out sessions sharing ideas and challenges.

Father George Horan, longtime director of the Office of Restorative Justice for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, gave participants an informative presentation on restorative justice and the spirituality and qualities needed to be an effective jail or prison ministry volunteer.
