1st pagan ministry to serve inmates in WV & OH state prisons
Appalachian Pagan Ministry is currently serving on-site monthly at prisons across WV and Ohio
Huntington, WV, December 30, 2016– Appalachian Pagan Ministry, founded by Rev. Donna Donovan in Huntington, WV, is currently the only Pagan ministry allowed in to West Virginia state prisons. Up till now, pagan inmates were allowed to meet once a week, and to celebrate 2 holidays a year, but were not allowed to have any sort of religious ceremony or ritual without outside pagan clergy present. Rev. Donovan and the Appalachian Pagan Ministry are the first allowed in by the West Virginia Dept. of Corrections. In Ohio, pagan inmates (Asatru/Odinist/Wiccans) are allowed to meet once a month and only with outside clergy present. At this time, Appalachian Pagan Ministry is serving on-site monthly at 5 facilities in WV: St Mary's, Salem, Lakin, Pruntytown, and Huttonsville Correctional, and on-site monthly at 4 facilities in Ohio: Allen-Oakwood, Southern Ohio, Warren and Chillicothe Correctional, including Death Row.
“These inmates, male and female alike, know the mistakes they have made in their lives. They are paying for those mistakes. Yet instead of wallowing in self-pity or continuing to blame outside sources for their current situation, they are holding themselves accountable and doing what they can to grow in body, mind and spirit to ensure they do not make those same mistakes again. Truly, how many of us really do that? These folks have made oaths to themselves, to their Gods, and to their ancestors to live honorably. They realize, and freely admit, they did not do so before...which is why they are in prison. How can we not help them be able to do that?”--Rev Donna Donovan
Approximately 2.3 million men & women are incarcerated, 95% of prisoners are released.... approx. 700, 000 of those will be this year. Some of those will be in your community. Help us to help our fellow pagans practice and grow in the faith of their choosing.
Working in Unity for the Greater Community
