Restorative Justice | Diocese of Lansing

Restorative Justice

The Office of Restorative Justice is committed to serving all people in prison or jail in our diocese who seek the fellowship and wisdom of Catholic priests and laymen working within their institutions. The office also works with men and women who are paroled into our communities and seek to reestablish normal patterns of life and work, and bear the stigma of ex-offender. Restorative justice's other goal is to work with children of incarcerated parents, with victims, juvenile offenders and others affected by the correctional system.

The Office of Restorative Justice is looking for volunteers to do work both inside and outside prisons and jails. It has a need for more volunteers to correspond with inmates through its Prisoner Pen Pal Program. One of the largest and most successful in the country.

If you think you have a heart for working with prisoners or parolees, please contact

Phone: 517-342-2512
