October – Prison Ministry
This month we’re focusing on the work the Vincentian Priests and Brothers do with prisoners and people who have been incarcerated: a ministry that was very dear to the heart of St. Vincent. We learn how these men have been able to get their lives back on track with the support of the Vincentians. We also explore one of their programs that serves formerly incarcerated men and learn how we, too, can get involved with helping others.
