Professor to talk about prison ministry

Professor Joshua Dubler, assistant professor of religion at the University of Rochester’s Department of Religion and Classics, will share insights from his new book, Down in the Chapel: Religious Life in an American Prison, during a talk at 7 p.m. April 9 at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 26 Mendon-Ionia Road, Mendon.

The book focuses on research that he conducted during a year and a half spent visiting the chapel at Pennsylvania State Correctional Institute at Graterford, which is a maximum-security prison. His research focused on religious and ethical challenges faced by a sample of prisoners, most who were serving life sentences without parole.
