Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Community

Prison Ministry

Our faith calls on us to treat every person with dignity, including those in our prisons, halfways homes, and detention centers.  Oftentimes, these are the individuals most in need of dignity and compassion.  The prison system can be a painful and damaging process for an inmate and his or her family.  Working with interfaith ministries and government officials, Episopalians minister to inmates and their families, assist those on parole, and call for reform not only of the prison system but in the criminal system as well.
