This webinar examines restorative justice as both a philosophy and practice built on repairing relationships and communities effected by acts of crime. It looks at
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.
We hope to create a more just and merciful criminal justice system closely aligned with the ministry and teaching of the Church and the example of Pope Francis.
Our aim is to serve by recruiting, training, supporting and empowering those called to missionary discipleship among the poor and marginalized.
