Jail Ministry

Since Thanksgiving Day of 2003, our parish community has provided communion services and Bible discussion each week in the Oconto County Jail.  Care ministers are trained through Diocesan-approved Care Ministry sessions and additional training through Prison Fellowship.  On average, 100 persons are served each year through this ministry.  Care ministers offer a listening, non-judgmental presence and materials to support their spiritual growth.  Confessions are conducted upon request.  Follow-up services are provided according to an individual's needs.  For more information, contact Kathy Schroeder @ 835-5900.

Our jail ministry is connected to the Dismas Ministry network, a national Catholic prison outreach, providing free Scripture, faith and prayer resources to inmates.  Vist them at www.dismasministry.org.
