Ministry Name

Archdiocese of Seattle - Criminal Justice Ministry


710 9th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104, USA


We are a team of Catholic chaplains and ministry volunteers committed to providing one-on-one pastoral care, Catholic Masses, sacraments, prayer services, bible studies, retreats, and other spiritual services inside Western Washington’s jails and prisons. We provide support to all people impacted by crime including victims, offenders, families, and community members. We are committed to systemic change via restorative justice peacemaking circles that address felony crimes and foster healing. We are additionally committed to re-entry approaches that empower faith communities to provide mutually transformative wraparound support for former prison residents. We believe in transforming suffering rather than transmitting it.
