What We Do
Members of the prison ministry visit with inmates on a regular basis and meet them where they are on their spiritual journey. Volunteers offer the incarcerated the opportunity to attend Mass, receive the sacraments of reconciliation and Holy Eucharist, study the scriptures, know their faith better, go on retreat, learn how to pray, meditate and more. Through this ministry, the person who is incarcerated is able to keep their faith alive, grow in the spirit, and have personal contact with the Church.
Deacon James Witulski talks about the importance of prison ministry and how these volunteers influence the lives of people who are incarcerated – talking with them about what they are going through, giving them an opportunity to worship and receive the sacraments, and helping them grow in their relationship with God.
