Religious Programming


PMCJF allows religious freedom to all residents and provides for the personal expression of the resident’s religion. However, all activities must comply with facility safety and security. Local clergy provide Bible study weekly to those residents who desire to attend. Family clergy may schedule visits with residents through written request to the Director.


If the resident’s religious belief requires special dietary consideration, the juvenile must present the request in writing to the Director. Special religious dietary arrangements shall be made for the juvenile as long as the request is reasonable, consistent with accepted civilized behavior, and does not constitute a risk to the facility safety, security, or operations.
