Detention Center Chaplains Gather for Training

Chaplains serving in six Homeland Security immigration detention centers recently gathered for their annual training meetings at the Notre Dame Retreat Center in Canandaigua, NY.  The group was comprised of staff members from Jesuit Refugee Service, USA and Church World Service – the groups partner to provide chaplains and religious service programs in detention centers throughout the United States.

Among the group were two Dominican Sisters (one was Sr. Lynn Allvin of the Oakford Dominicans), two Jesuit priests, a Lady of Victory Knoll Missionary Sister, a Franciscan Sister, a Catholic deacon, a Presbyterian Minister, a Pastor of the Reformed United Church of Christ, a Muslim and a 7th Day Adventist. It was a richly diverse group!
