Women’s Prison Chaplain Finds It Difficult to Leave
12 Apr, 2014
Grand Valley Institute for Women was lucky to have Rosemary Redshaw as their chaplain for 17 years. As her final day as chaplain approached, however, she found it more difficult than ever to say goodbye.
Unfortunately her decision was not made all on her own. The current restructuring around chaplains in federal institutions is posing a huge problem to committed individuals who are simply trying to reach out and help the community in a multitude of positive ways.
Furthermore, it is not just devastating for Redshaw to have to say goodbye. The headway she’s made with the Kitchener community is making staff members and even inmates restless with discontent.
