Danny saw The Light in 1985, while serving a 2 year sentence at the Plymouth County Jail. Someone gave him a Bible and he read about Jesus of Nazareth. When Jesus started to talk about sin in Matthew 5:21,22,27,28, he soon began to realize that he was in trouble. When he saw Christ as He is portrayed in Holy Scripture, he began to see himself. When he saw Perfection (Jesus), he saw how far short that he had missed the mark. Danny was ordained in July of 1995 and was able to begin serving as the full time Chaplain in the Plymouth County Correctional Facility (PCCF) on October 1, 1996.
