USA: JRS ministers to detainees
Fr Kenneth J Gavin SJ, JRS USA Director, talks about the chaplaincy services provided by Jesuit Refugee Service/ to immigrants in detention centers across the United States.

"We make sure men and women who are detained have access to the solace of their God, in whatever religious tradition they come from," says Fr Gavin, noting that JRS ministers to Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant and other detainees.

"There is a dramatic need people have to really experience God in their life," says Fr Gavin. "In all the anxiety of detention, they know that the Lord is with them."
