The Church of the Holy Spirit Jail & Prision Outreach Ministry Orientation
The yearly two night orientation sessions for all cleared volunteers working inside the Oakland County Jail in Pontiac are on March 10th & 18th from 6:30 - 9:00. You may also attend the orientation sessions if YOU feel the; tug in you're heart and have questions about how YOU can bring the LOVE of our LORD JESUS to the forgotten. (Matthew. 25: 35-40) This is a great way to see the fruits of Sister Peggy Devaney's 33 year selfless labor of Love, changing attitudes thru respect, paving the way for jail chaplains to be welcomed within the jail. Sadly the job will never be done. Many valued people have passed on to Eternal Glory leaving Sister Peggy and Martha overwhelmed. I have never heard them complain; they trust, and pray that their prayers will be answered and YOU, yes YOU will come see. Maybe if it is God's will Christ will have a new servant in the jail YOU!
