About the Event

The Catholic Diocese of Richmond is excited to announce two 2019 Prison Ministry Summits. These regional events will feature a variety of speakers and breakout sessions related to prison ministry both within and outside of the facilities. Come learn from subject matter experts on critical issues such as restorative justice; re-entry; advocacy; and how we as Catholics can effectively support faith formation within jails, prisons, and detention centers.

At the October 26th event, Caitlin Morneau, CMN's Director of Restorative Justice, will provide the keynote address on Restorative Justice and host an afternoon breakout on peacemaking circles.

Participants will:

  • Learn what prison ministry is and how to become involved
  • Discover ways to strengthen prison ministry efforts in your parish
  • Share best practices and success stories

Breakout Sessions Include:

  • Faith Formation of Inmates
  • Restorative Justice
  • Family Support
