This webinar addresses the importance of suitable Catholic formation programs to prepare and sustain persons serving in detention centers, jails, and prisons.  While highlighting what is important to include in formation programs, it also invites the audience to share about formation programs that already exist across the U.S. 

The presenters are Dr. David Lichter and Dale Recinella.  Dr. Lichter is Executive Director of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains (NACC).  Mr. Recinella is Founder and President of I was in Prison Outreach Ministry, a licensed attorney, and Catholic Chaplain for Florida Death Row.
