Kairos Autumn 2016 - How You Can Help
October 15, 2016
We will have three parishioners serving with inside teams at two Kairos Prison Ministry Weekends this Autumn.
Wayne Krueger will be working with Death Row inmates at Kairosn Weekend #5 at Chillicothe Correctional Institution beginning Thursday, October 20 and ending on Sunday, October 23. Wayne writesL
"I would greatly appreciate your prayers for our team as we share the good news of God's love and forgiveness for the prisoners with whom we will meet so they may experience God's presence and give them hope in their lives. Thank you."

Thank You Cards from Prisoners
The men whom God brought to recent Kairos Weekends at Warren Correctional Institute want to thank all those who prayed, baked, cooked, and served during those weekends. They put their thanks on the attached greetings. The art work was done by the men, themselves. Just click on the photos for the full-size versions.
Icons of Christ in Prison
About the 'Christ in Prison' icon:
It came to pass because some of us who were going to the prison each week commented that it was true that we meet Christ when we visit His brethren. I had been talking to Fr. Ted in Dayton about his prison ministry, and he told me that one of his guys wrote icons. I got in contact with the inmate, and he did this icon for us. It is a very traditional image, except that Christ is wearing an Ohio prison uniform. The icon was a blessing to several of us at the OCPM gathering in Denver, and the original went home with a man whose son is in prison.
