Join us Saturday, September 26, from 10 to 1 pm, as we welcome Richmond City Jail Chaplain Alonzo Pruitt to speak to Christ Church about their jail as well as the nature of incarceration in America. We will also be having lunch, provided by Smoked BBQ Company. We will also take some time to update everyone on our own jail ministry here in Charlottesville. All are welcome to come, regardless of level of involvement or interest. To RSVP, contact Willis Logan: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forgoing any kind of stipend, Chaplain Pruitt only asks that those who are able to come bring any spare travel-sized toiletries for the residents of the Richmond Jail. This could be toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc. It is a way Chaplain Pruitt is able to bestow some simple gestures of humanity on those who are incarcerated.
