Bishop Ricken celebrated Mass for inmates at Redgranite Correctional Institution

Behind a makeshift altar standing in the shadows of a basketball hoop, Bishop David L. Ricken celebrated Mass in a gymnasium that could have been mistaken for any Catholic school gym in the Diocese of Green Bay.

But the uniformed security officers stationed at the gym's entrance, as well as the two security checkpoints situated in areas outside of the athletic facility, made it clear that this was not an ordinary gymnasium.

Nor was it an ordinary Mass.

As part of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Bishop Ricken celebrated Mass Nov. 2 for inmates at Redgranite Correctional Institution, a medium security adult male correctional institution located in the village of Redgranite, about 80 miles southwest of Green Bay.

    Or any Catholic church for that matter!
