Our Parish Prison Ministry currently partners with Kairos of Ohio to provide opportunities to those willing to serve Christ inside area prisons, including 3 half-day weekends, weekly prayer, and share evenings.
Parishioners are also able to help support our Prison Ministry by baking cookies for prisoners for the Kairos Weekends, as well as join the Kairos Prayer Chain to pray round the clock during these special Prison Ministry weekends. Kairos team members are also able to invite parishioners to attend the Kairos 'Graduation' ceremonies, always a very powerful experience.
Scroll down for a brief look at some thank you messages from prisoners whose lives we have touched for Christ, and be sure to explore our Kairos Archives for more information.
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.
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.
