Reclaiming Wholeness is an exploration of addiction, recovery, community, and spirituality.

Four out of five people who are incarcerated enter confinement under the influence of a substance or with an existing substance use disorder. Addiction is an indiscriminate disease. With this conversation, and in partnership with coalition members, the Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition provides a platform for chaplains, ministers, loved ones, community members, and those in recovery to become compassionately aware and gain a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding addiction and incarceration.

Four voices, Jim Wahlberg (The Big Hustle, What About the Kids?), Evelene Duhart (Ignatian Spirituality Project), Lisa DeLaura (Just of DuPage), and host His Eminence Cardinal Joseph Tobin (Archdiocese of Newark) come together to share their wisdom and stories, their road to recovery, and how they accompany others impacted by this disease.

“In this place where people struggle with drug addiction, I wish to embrace each and every one of you, who are the flesh of Christ.”

– Pope Francis
