Kairos Weekend at Warren CI, Nov 5-8

October 26, 2015


Dear Parish Faithful,


Prayer Vigil


The Kairos Prison Ministry weekend at Warren C I is coming up November 5-8, and we would welcome your prayer support. For those comfortable with the computer, you can go to

and select the time(s) you are willing to pray, then fill in the blanks.  You should get an e-mail reminder of the time you chose.
For those who are a little more "traditional," there is a paper prayer vigil on the table in the hall on which you can sign up for prayer time(s).
The men inside the walls are always very powerfully impacted to realize that hundreds of people in the outside world are praying for them -  people they have never met.


Cookie Baking


If any of our parish family would like to provide cookies for the Kairos weekend, you can bring them to the church hall next Sunday, November 1. I know this is short notice, and if you prefer, you can bring them November 8, and we can use them for the Instructional Day the following Saturday.


Cookies must be home baked and packed 2 dozen in a gallon plastic freezer bag.

Thank you for your support.

Two KAIROS Weekends coming in October and November

Sent to Parish on August 12, 2015


There are two Kairos weekends coming soon, and either one is an opportunity for our Parish men to carry the love of God to lonely men inside the prison walls.
Chillicothe C I will be October 22-25. This is a medium security facility (if that matters to you.) If you feel called to serve there, contact Wayne Krueger at (513)673-4403 or  Training is about to start.
Warren C I will be November 5-8.  Warren is a "high close" facility, but don't let that scare you off. If you feel called to this prison, contact Terry Morgan at (513)542-7114 or Team building will start in September.
If you suspect the Lord might be calling you to serve, - He probably is!

Pray for Kairos Weekend 13!

March 23, 2015



We are coming to another opportunity for our church family to minister to those in prison.  Kairos 13 at Warren Correctional Institute will be served on April 30 - May 3, and we would like to ask you to join Andrew Herbst and me in serving.  Not by going inside on the team, but by your prayers.  If you are willing, please sign up to pray for our team and the residents for one hour (or several if you wish). A Prayer Vigil Sign Up is on the table in the hall, and you can add your name to the time slot you choose.  Or, if you are more tech comfortable, go to:

and click the time slot of your choice, then fill in the blanks.  Either method works.

Thank you, and God bless your service.

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

Kairos 'Christ in Prison'
Kairos 'Christ in Prison'
Kairos '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.
