A thriving prison ministry provides a Catholic presence for long-term inmates. - Frank is not your typical Catholic. He is serving a life sentence at Clements Unit, a prison in Amarillo, Texas. Despite his separation from the rest of the world, Frank does not feel alone. He and approximately 1,500 inmates across seven prisons in the Diocese of Amarillo are ministered to by a team of five priests, eight deacons and eighteen lay volunteers who spend their time bringing the "outside" Church to the "inside."
