Catholic Religious Services at Washtenaw County Jail
Our volunteer ministers: Have a charisma for Christ,
and, an ability to share faith in Jesus.
Due to our Public Health response to COVID 19, UNFORTUNATELY, Access to the Washtenaw County Jail continues to be suspended until further notice. The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office cannot commit to a date at which public access to the jail will be reinstated. It would be in the best interest of all programs and services provided in the Washtenaw County Jail to plan accordingly for the remainder of 2020. When things change for the Washtenaw County Jail we will reach out to our partners and work on reestablishing programs with even more success.
Thank you for all you have done to support the work we do in the Washtenaw County Jail and the mission of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office and Reentry Services. We will continue to push forward and navigate these unprecedented times together, with a positive focus on the future.
- ALL ministers ENTER the jail TOGETHER at the time scheduled. A group of at least three or four Catholic volunteer ministers from local Catholic parishes all together enter the jail to pray with both women and/or men each week on three different occasions, Saturday mornings, Sunday evenings and Wednesday evenings.
- The "Sunday Liturgy" is celebrated on Saturday mornings at the jail (with the bishop's permission).
- This schedule below here is kept especially for our volunteers to know who will be on each team, and, for the jail staff, and, so our team members might be contacted in case of a cancelation. Our "cleared" ministers do NOT necessarily need to be listed on the schedule below here to enter the jail to assist with any of our Catholic Religious Services.
Sign-up for a ministry team date below here.
(Only those who are already cleared to enter, may sign-up below here.)
Or, Sign-up for the Jail Volunteer Orientation.
