Pastoral Services

The role of the Clergy Volunteer Services, through the assistance of volunteer ministers, is to focus on the spiritual care and encouragement of inmates and to respond with compassion and support of all faiths in need of spiritual guidance or pastoral counseling during their time of incarceration.

We invite all clergy to visit inmates, with the understanding that they must, first, obtain permission to do so. In order to obtain this permission, please call the Clergy Coordinator at 337-394-3071 during normal business hours (8am to 4:30pm) Monday through Friday. Please be aware that there is an application process and a brief one (1) hour mandatory training session. The clergy visitation schedule is as follows:

  • Monday 6:30pm to 8:30pm
  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 1:30pm to 3:30pm
  • Friday 6:30pm to 8:30pm
  • No clergy visits on holidays or weekend unless prior approved
