A Catholic Retreat Behind Bars: Kolbe Prison Ministries

The Kolbe Prison Retreat is similar to an ACTS retreat that is offered by Catholic parishes and is named after Saint Maximilian Kolbe, who was martyred in a German concentration camp during World War II.

About 65 inmates attend the retreat and are chosen by the prison chaplain and the prison warden after demonstrating good conduct and a desire to attend a faith-based event. Inmates don’t have to be Catholic to attend the retreat.
