Once a month, Vicar Debra Slade and one or two prison volunteers offer a Holy Communion Service in the hospital of the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Bedford Hills, N.Y. Bedford Hills Is the only maximum security prison for women in New York state, and many of the women coming to the service have long or life sentences for serious offenses. The volunteers spend about three hours, and the women see their visit as a chance to socialize.
Note: There is an initial clearance process to get approved for entry into the prison.
