Prison ministry for adults, within the Diocese of Phoenix Prison Ministry, involves the badged volunteer (MCSO or ADOC) entering the facility, passing through security and entering into the location upon which the inmates are brought to you in order to receive the Gospel and the Blessed Sacrament. This is accomplished through the Liturgy of the Word with Eucharist (approximately 1 hour). It is here with the inmates, both male and female, that we are able to experience and encounter the living Christ and bring the incarcerated, the Bread of Life.

- Liturgy of the word with Eucharist
