Rockview Deacon Named Chaplain of the Year
September 14, 2018
Deacon means "servant," and that's a title one chaplain takes very seriously.
SCI Rockview's Deacon Tom Boldin has been serving as the Facility Chaplaincy Program Director since January 2007, and his work focuses on building relationships and achieving harmony for all. This month Boldin's work was recognized as he was honored with the Pennsylvania Prison Chaplains Association State Chaplain of the Year Award.
Originally Boldin came to Rockview as the Farm Manager in 1991. In 2004 he became a chaplain before accepting his current role in 2007.
Boldin treats all faith groups fairly and meets with members of each group to resolve conflicts, and he never turns away a request to see a chaplain no matter what the situation.
Even outside of Rockview Boldin takes time to serve others. Boldin serves his local church and is on the Centre County's Community Youth Aid Panel for Balanced and Restorative Justice since 2004. He also serves on the Centre County Conservation Board.
