Visiting chaplains go into prisons, jails, and the incarceration wards of hospitals and other adult and juvenile detention centers in your local area upon request. The visiting chaplain can conduct Christian Science services, or meet with inmates in small groups or 1-on-1 sessions. These visits may be much like a Sunday School class on a topic that you think will be helpful or that is requested by an individual inmate. How often you go is determined by your own availability and the rules and schedule of the institution, but usually visiting chaplains go into an institution weekly or monthly. Some visiting chaplains work at only one institution, some at multiple institutions.
