From the Field

[Extracts from Annual Report of Committee on Christian Science Work at Folsom State Prison and Preston School of Industry, California]

A Christian Science worker visits the prison each Saturday to minister to the spiritual welfare of those who are interested in Christian Science and desire help. Each Sunday the worker and an assistant read the Lesson-Sermon in the prison to an average attendance of seventy-five inmates. Inmates who are students of Christian Science assist as organist and soloist at the services.

One man in Folsom prison, through gratitude for what Christian Science had done for him, ordered the Journal, Sentinel, Monitor, and Quarterly for one year, and most of Mrs. Eddy's writings, to be sent to his sister in Georgia, which resulted in his sister's taking up the study of Christian Science. Many men who have left the prison have, through their understanding of Christian Science, been able to rehabilitate themselves and become useful citizens.
