What is REC?

REC (Residents Encounter Christ) is an inter-denominational Christian ministry to prisoners.  It is a variation of Cursillo and Emmaus, modified for the prison environment.  Although Roman Catholic in its roots, REC is ecumenical in its scope. The word "encounter" is exactly what happens during the three-day REC experience.  A team of about thirty Christian men and women from different denominational backgrounds, both lay and clergy, enter the prison to share three days of Christian community.  After the initial REC Walk is held at a prison, monthly follow-up meetings are held to encourage and support the residents in their spiritual growth and Christian community.
