Our Webinars

The Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition (CPMC) seeks to enhance Catholic ministry to those incarcerated, detained, or reentering society and those affected by incarceration, while also assisting the Church in the United States to work for a justice that is integrated, inclusive, and restorative.

To do this requires we open up forums and opportunities for the sharing of resources and practices to strengthen the Church in its mission to advance a vision of justice that upholds the dignity of every human person. One way that we pursue this mission is through our webinars.

Mark your calendar for our next webinar on August 14th!
