CPMC is the shorthand for Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition.

The Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition (CPMC) promotes Catholic ministry to all those affected by incarceration.

    • We seek to create a more just and merciful society through advocacy on the local, state, & national levels.
    • We seek to educate, equip, and accompany all those involved in prison ministry.
    • We seek to create a national website to connect ministry leaders, those seeking assistance, and those involved in advocacy.
