Prison Ministry

“I was in prison and you visited me”
Matthew 25:36


Prison Ministry seeks to fulfill the gospel call to recognize all people as Children of God and to minister to people within the criminal justice system through principles of Restorative justice. Ministry members focus not only on those who are currently incarcerated but also those who have been recently released.


Prison ministry’s focus areas are:

  • to provide a Catholic presence in local jails by offering sacraments, visitation and prayer.

  • to partner with “Williamsburg Walks the Talk” prison ministry and United Way "Welcome Home" re-entry guest houses.
