In the Diocese of Raleigh, Prison Ministry shares the Gospel with the poor and marginalized by offering spiritual support to those who are incarcerated. Many of these men and women have never heard the authentic message of Christ and desperately need to know that they are loved. Our goal is to help those in prison to practice their Catholic faith and receive their sacraments. All Christians are baptized priest, prophet, and king; prison ministry is an opportunity to fulfill your baptismal promises by sharing the Gospel with those on the margins of society. Each correctional facility in North Carolina provides unique opportunities for outreach including worship services, scripture studies, and sacramental preparation. These services are opportunities for fellowship and catechesis with the inmates before and after the service.
