In a program to help prisoners reintegrate into society after long bouts of jail time (Entrée Libre), volunteers pick up inmates from prisons around Montreal and bring them to a weekly meeting in a church basement, which is facilitated by a priest. While the meetings are completely secular in nature, the volunteers have religious affiliations and backgrounds. Where religion historically initiated philanthropy, today philanthropy often takes the leading role, with issues of faith and religiosity coming second, or even left entirely unspoken.
