The Prison Ministry Team serves at the Miami County Correctional Facility by teaching and praying with the offenders. In the one hour each we that the Prison Ministry Team encounters the inmates, they are able to do a lot of good. Many say that it’s the only time they feel close to normal and have contact with the outside world. Each week, our group of volunteers divides into two groups to allow us to offer Mass and catechesis on each side concurrently. There is a great need to explain our faith, Sacraments, history and traditions to these men along with offering the Sacraments — Mass, Reconciliation and occasionally Baptism and Confirmation. The team meets for lunch prior to heading to the prison to minister on Wednesdays from 1:15 – 3 p.m.
