RELIGIOUS SERVICES DEPARTMENT

The purpose of the Religious Services Department is to provide inmates of all faiths with reasonable and equitable opportunities to pursue their individual belief within the constraints of budgetary limitations and the security and orderly running of the institution.

Chaplains are available upon request to provide pastoral care, counseling, religious education, and conduct worship services. Volunteers and contractors will be provided by the Religious Services Department.

Requests concerning pastoral visits, retention of religious property and personal religious items, observance of religious holidays, religious diet program, appointments with chaplaincy staff, and other specific requests of a religious nature should be submitted to the Religious Services Department on an Inmate Request to Staff form.

There is a religious library for inmates to obtain devotional materials and reference materials to assist in the practice of their religious beliefs.

The religious program schedule and chaplains’ duty schedules are posted in each dormitory and the Chapel.
