Prison Minstry

Prison Ministry involves going to visit those in prison, or assisting with Eucharistic Services and Mass held in the prisons. This is a difficult ministry, but one which we are all called to assist:

" I was ... in prison and you came to visit me." (Matthew 25:34-40)

The Office of Justice and Peace coordinates the training and placement of lay persons wishing to do this ministry. A discernment process is available for those who want to examine this ministry and reflect on whether they feel called to carry out this ministry.
