Monroe County Detention
The Christmas season can
be difficult for many and those
separated from friends and
family by incarceration face unique challenges. Therefore, as has
been our tradition for many years, the Basilica will be
conducting its Christmas caroling and gift distribution again this
This year, we will be stuffing the Christmas gift bags in the
Mary Immaculate Room of the KMC on Thursday 12/04/19 at
7:00 PM. The process usually takes less than 1.5 hours but
depends significantly on how many volunteers are willing to
participate in stuffing the more than 600 bags that are required.
Donations to help cover costs associated with this program are
also greatly appreciated.
The Christmas Caroling & Gift Bag distribution portion of
the program will take place at the Monroe County Detention
Center on Thursday 12/19/19 at 7:30 PM. Although trained
vocalists and musicians are appreciated, you need only a huge
smile and an open heart to participate in this program.
Completion of the Security Clearance Form is required.
The form must be completed and returned (with a picture ID
attached) by 12/4/19. For more information, please contact
Brenda Callahan at (410) 703 8211 or email
