Light in a Dark Place: LDS Clergy Help Jail Inmates Discover Faith in God

On the mend from an infraction they’ve committed in their past, several Cache County Jail inmates have sought communication with a higher power through various religious programs at the Cache County Jail.

“I know I’m new at this but it seems to be the right thing,” said an inmate during the opening prayer of a Sunday Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints service.

From the moment they sit down in a religious service, inmates embrace God and his teachings, in touch with their faith and a sense of normalcy for a few hours.

“I get some type of peace of mind. I don’t have to worry about interaction with people,” said one inmate.

“It’s a really peaceful learning experience,” said another.
