Kids’ ministry at jail in need of volunteers

A children’s ministry at Auburn Correctional Facility is seeking volunteers to spend time with the children who visit the facility with their mothers on weekend afternoons.

Many of the women and children take a bus from New York City to spend the day visiting the men incarcerated in the facility. This makes for a long day for children, and volunteers spend an hour reading, playing and coloring with them.

For more information, contact Deacon Nick Valvo at Sacred Heart Parish at 315/252-7271.
