Federal Prison Chaplaincy Services Losing Faith
16 Apr, 2013
Last fall, we told you about cuts to part-time chaplain positions in federal penitentiaries.
Almost fifty part-time chaplains’ contracts, 12 of them in Quebec, were set to expire and not be renewed at the end of March. Reverend Tim Smart was one of them.
For the past three years, he has served as a part-time Protestant chaplain at the medium security Cowansville Institute in the Eastern Townships. We’ve reached him this morning in Sutton.
