Know Any Buddhist Prison Chaplains in FL?

December 16, 2008

Specifically in the area of the Florida State Prison in Raiford, FL?

I write to a guy incarcerated there and thought it might be helpful for him to get some guidance from someone who may be able to get inside the prison for a visit or more. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Thanks everyone for the responses! I am sending out a letter today to make sure he even wants a visit, probably should do that first. But it doesn’t hurt to try to arrange something in the meantime.

    Hey, Nate! I posted your request to the Buddhist chaplaincy listserve. Also, I know Frank Tedesco was a Buddhist chaplain at a prison in Florida’s Pinellas County (see my post about his removal from that position here). If you can track him down, perhaps he could be helpful.

    I know somebody that MIGHT be able to point you in the right direction. I’ll ask and see.

    Gateless Gate Zen Center in Gainesville has a prison outreach program. I don’t know Florida so don’t know how close it might be to the prison.
