The bilingual program on September 26 featured music and prayers from the International Alliance of Chaplains and Law Enforcement.

Led by Pastor Moisés Escalera, members of the International Alliance of Chaplains and Law Enforcement sang songs of faith in Spanish and in English with inmates singing along. The group also had instrumental accompaniment with a keyboardist and a guitarist.

The participants from the International Alliance of Chaplains and Law Enforcement represent a cross section of Hispanic nations and places, including Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru and Puerto Rico.

After the formal program, inmates and guests enjoyed a traditional Central American meal of pupusas with cabbage and red salsa.

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated September 15 through October 15.
