Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Ensuring Spiritual Needs Of Residents Of Muslim Faith Are Addressed During Ramadan

Below is a press release from the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office:

BILLERICA, MA — With the season of Ramadan upon us, the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is ensuring the spiritual needs of those of the Muslim faith currently incarcerated at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction are being addressed.
The MSO chaplaincy team has been working to ensure that individuals of the Muslim faith have access to Qurans as well as the opportunity to participate in the evening tradition of breaking fast. Preparations are also underway to celebrate Eid next month.

While the MSO has implemented numerous steps to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, chaplains have been working to guarantee religious services are continuing. Last month, chaplains made sure inmates of the Jewish faith received Seder Plates and prayer books for Passover, while Protestant and Catholic chaplains recorded Easter services that were broadcast inside the facility.

“Faith is a critical pillar for many of those in our custody,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian. “We are committed to making sure individuals are able to continue to practice their faith during these extraordinary times.”
