Detention Ministry

Catholic prisoners at the Washington State Penitentiary are asking for more Masses or communion services to be offered at the prison. Currently prisoners have an opportunity to attend Mass once a month, in some cases only once every two months. To address the need, lay volunteers (men or women) are needed from the three parishes. If you feel that you can help with as little as 2 – 4 hours on one weekend each month or would just like to know about this ministry, please contact:
