Archbishop of Santa Fe Michael J. Sheehan will distribute ashes Wednesday in each unit at the Metropolitan Detention Center in observance of Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, the traditional Christian period of repentance which precedes Easter. Corrections Chief Ramon Rustin says the services are open to any inmate interested in participating.

“The church is not here to judge them; nor convert them, nor apply ‘the law’ on them, nor question them on their life. The purpose is to support them in their spiritual walk, especially as they together begin Lent,” Chief Rustin adds.

On Ash Wednesdays of past, the Archbishop Sheehan has shared with the inmates that everyone is not without sin and in need of redemption. Pointing out that every inmate, who is currently behind bars, is somebody’s grandparent, mom or dad, sister or brother, husband or wife, son or daughter, or girlfriend or boyfriend.
