Prison Ministry

One of the most difficult of all ministries is prison ministry. We have two deacons here at St. Mary's with years of experience going into jails and prisons to minister to the incarcerated. My oldest sister, will be helping with her first prison retreat this weekend. The retreat is an ecumenical Christian retreat based on the cursillo retreat, called Kairos.

Please pray for the men who will be attending this retreat.

Thank you to all who prayed for the inmates and the staff of the Kairos retreat we just had at the maximum security Ferguson Unit outside of Madisonville, TX.

It was my first time on the team and it was a mind-blowing experience to feel and see the workings of the Holy Spirit in such an evil-filled place!

My friends and my family plan to continue in this ministry and encourage you to inform yourself about what Kairos is and what it is doing (Marcel has a link on this blog posting). Feel free to email me as well at sim2smile@yahoo for more information.

Your Sister In Christ,
Simone
