Prison Visitation is made up of men and women volunteers who minister to help our brothers and sisters “redeem, restore and reconcile” their lives, by visiting inmates in provincial and federal prisons. Inmates often feel unloved and unlovable, but have said in many ways that the volunteers show them that the community hasn’t given up on them. Volunteers visit in groups for various activities and Programs such as Mass, praise and worship, Taize, Bible Study, Rosary making, Houses of Healing and many more.
