According to a court document issued August 5 and obtained by PEOPLE Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton approved a request for the Full House alum to visit Canada this fall for a week-long work trip. The visit is set for either September or October, contingent if Loughlin accepts the filming job.
The memo notes that “Ms. Loughlin has remained in compliance during her term of supervised release,” having paid a $150,000 fine and completed a community service requirement.
Loughlin previously traveled to Canada last year for work on WHEN HOPE CALLS, the spin-off of WHEN CALLS THE HEART, on which Loughlin appeared for years before her arrest and subsequent imprisonment.
Movieguide® previously reported on how Loughlin’s faith saw her through her time in prison:
Lori Loughlin is reportedly using her prison sentence to draw closer to the Lord.
The 56-year-old WHEN CALLS THE HEART is almost halfway into her two-month prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal. Loughlin arrived at Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., in late October and hopes for a release the week of Christmas.
According to Us Weekly, Loughlin said her first night in prison was discouraging but soon established a routine that includes prayer.
Us Weekly reported that Loughlin, a mother of two, regularly attends church services at the federal correctional facility.
“Lori has been praying a lot,” Us Weekly’s source said.
Other than a small circle of inmates she calls friends, Loughlin keeps to herself.
The former WHEN CALLS THE HEART star also announced that she volunteered with Project Angel Food to give back to the community.
“It is a community, it is a family, and all the people that work here are so wonderful,” she told KTLA 5. “They have welcomed me with such open arms at a time when I was feeling particularly down and broken.”
Laughlin continued: “That’s how I found a home here, and that’s what I feel like they did for me, and that’s why I’m so proud to be here and working with this organization, because they really do care. It’s really a community.”
