Groundbreaking for prison chapel set

— A groundbreaking ceremony for a prison chapel to be built at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center is set for 2 p.m. Thursday. The Rev. Joe Wilson, domestic coordinator for World Mission Builders, said the chapel will be constructed through an old-fashioned barn-raising beginning Sept. 16. Fundraising for the chapel has been ongoing for the last three years as private individuals, churches and some inmates at the women's prison donated to a chapel building fund. Wilson, of Enid, has said the cost to build and furnish the 5,000-square-foot chapel is $500,000.

For more information, call Wilson at (580) 747-2550.
