Prison and Jail Ministry

The Office of Prison and Jail Ministry is committed to serving all people in prison or jail, within our diocese through Christian principals by our Catholic priests, deacons, and lay people. The office also provides assistance to those who are released into our communities and seek to reestablish themselves into everyday patterns of life and work. We help direct them to the appropriate resources and Catholic Charity Agencies in the various counties of the Diocese of Lansing.
