The Commission on Prison Ministry is charged with the responsibility of communicating the needs, issues, and concerns of those in prison to the congregations of our Diocese. The Commission serves as a network and resource for equipping our congregations for ministry in prisons.
The goal of the commission is: To help our congregations learn about the needs of victims and offenders and their families, the causes and conditions of incarceration in our State's, and the problems facing prisoners reentering society, in order to make a positive difference.
The commission has developed a cycle of prayer which remembers all correctional institutions and jails, inmates, staff members, and victims of crime in our Diocese. This cycle is available to be utilized in the prayers of the people each week throughout the year.
