Pender inmates may soon have ample space to pray

Body

Inmates at Pender Correctional Facility may soon have a new place to worship.

About a year ago, we visited the prison’s worship space and were told, by prisoners and the chaplain, the space is just not big enough to accommodate all who want to pray.

On Monday, Chaplain James Spirtosanto told us about three-quarters of the funds they need have been collected.

Spirtosanto estimates the total cost for the project will be $350,000. He added that the prison only needs about eighty percent of that to start construction.
