You Visited Me…
Recent research has shown that prisoners who are visited are less likely to re-offend.
Anglicans and Lutherans have planned a meeting on prison related ministry on March 20th.
Recent research has shown that prisoners who are visited are less likely to re-offend. Last fall the Roman Catholic Archbishop Weisberger called a meeting for his diocese to find out what was going on in ministry in Corrections and to see what more should the church be doing. It was very successful, and we are trying to duplicate it for our churches.
A panel will include a family who had a member who was incarcerated, prison volunteers from our churches, an ex-offender and a Christian NGO helping prisoners.
If this gathering is to be a success we need people to attend who:
- Work or have worked in the Justice System
- Families who have or have had a member incarcerated
- Potential volunteers
- Anyone interested in the Justice System
- Interested clergy
Tuesday, March 20th
Registration 4:30 pm, wrap up at 8:45pm. Meal will be served.
