Marriages: It is possible for inmates to get married while incarcerated at FCI Estill, providing they meet all specified criteria and
as long as they obtain the warden’s approval. The magistrate of Hampton County, South Carolina, allows for the groom-elect to not
be present when applying for marriage licenses. This would be completed with a “Power of Attorney.” The chaplains and unit
management staffwill provide more guidance on this issue upon request.
Religious Offerings: A wide range of religious programs are offered. Staff chaplains are available, as well as contract and
volunteer representatives of various faiths. Special religious diets, holiday observances, and other worship activities are coordinated
through the chaplains’ office. Information and schedules are posted on the inmate and chapel bulletin boards, and you may contact
the chaplains’ office for additional information.
Life Connections Program: The Federal Bureau of Prisons now offers the Life Connections Program (LCP) to inmates interested in
deepening their spirituality and in continuing their spiritual lives once released from incarceration. The LCP is an I8-month
residential program offered to all inmates meeting the program criteria. See a chaplain for further details.
