Jail & Prison Goals

The goals of Jail/Prison Ministry are:


  • To bring them the Gospel of Good News, reinforcing Christian values so that they can recover their dignity and to assure them of God’s Love.
  • To witness and share with them the fullness of our Catholic Faith, providing scripture and faith studies according to Catholic Catechesis.  
  • To provide RCIA classes for those wishing to complete their sacraments and/or convert to the Catholic Faith.  
  • To lead those who already have their sacraments to a fuller and richer participation in their Catholic Faith.   
  • To present opportunities for spiritual transformation via four-day Kolby Prison retreats.


  • To provide spiritual growth opportunities for all JPM volunteers so that they may also grow and share their faith more fully.
  • To nurture and foster their commitment by providing two annual gatherings where they are recognized and where we celebrate their dedication in God’s service.
