Lompoc Federal Correction Institution
Parish priests regularly visit to celebrate mass, pray with, provide reconciliation and encourage those who are seeking to change their lives with the help of God's grace. They may also prepare inmates for confirmation, lead scripture studies and assist in other pastoral care to those in need.
Los Prietos Boys Academy
Thru the Baby Elmo program, the Hospitality and Community Care team collects children's books from the parish community and delivers them to Los Prietos. The inmates can select a book, makie a video recording of their reading and send the video and book to their child. Reading to a child builds parental bonds with a child and builds reading skills for the parent as they work on changing their lives and re-entry back into their family and community. If you are interested in donating a new or gently used children's book or in making a monetary contribution to this worthwhile progect, contact Joanne Tegge at 688-7566 or look for the Book Drive sign and box in the back of the church.
