Lord in Heaven, as we are unable to visit our brothers and sisters in prison at this time, please sustain them in their faith and bless all who are in custody. Keep them safe from this disease and allow them to look forward to such time as we may gather in community once again.
The Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition (CPMC) promotes Catholic ministry to all those affected by incarceration and detention. Our goal is to recruit, train, support and empower those called to this ministry.
We hope to create a more just and merciful criminal justice system closely aligned with the ministry and teaching of the Church and the example of Pope Francis.
We aim to educate, equip, and accompany all those ministering to and seeking ministry for people affected by incarceration.
We aim to create a national website to connect ministry leaders, those seeking assistance, and those involved in advocacy.
We aim to create a more just and merciful society through advocacy on the local, state, & national levels.
“Jail and Prison Ministry 101” includes six training and formation videos, covering fundamental topics and issues pertinent to persons involved in Catholic jail and prison ministry.
