We visit the Larimer County Detention Center (LCDC) to offer inmates the opportunity to receive Holy Communion. We also provide a bible study program for inmates. Mass is celebrated, Communion services are held and confessions are heard. Assistance is provided in other areas for those who are released from the LCDC (i.e. transportation, resource referral, mentoring, etc.)
