Prison Ministry

Through our Saint Vincent DePaul council we work with incarcerated men as well as newly released offenders.  There are opportunities to volunteer as a mentor inside the prison and/or provide assistance to those returning to society.

For more information, contact Joe McLaughlin.

Prison Ministry is part of our Social Concerns Committee whose mission is to protect and provide assistance to those who are in need.  As a pro-life community, we value all life.  This is the basis for the service work that we provide. The Social Concerns committee is always looking for new volunteers and is open to starting new ministries.  Please consider volunteering.  Our meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month at 12:30 p.m.

Our mentoring group meets twice a month in the prison. Seeing the joy in the faces of the inmates and all the thanks and well wishes they offer when it is over brings a very joyful feeling to us all. I would like others to know that a person leaving the prison is not prepared in any way to re-enter society. If they have no support from family or friends, they find they have no funds, appropriate clothing, food, or shelter. St. Vincent de Paul and Holy Cross Prison Ministry assist the men as they make this transition.
