Prison Ministry Awareness Sunday is May 21

The Assembly of Bishops has announced that Sunday, May 21, 2017, is Prison Ministry Awareness Sunday. "We who do not live in the darkness of a prison or jail cannot truly comprehend the incredible distress men and women prisoners live with each and every day," notes Fr. Stephen Powley, Antiochian priest and Executive Director of Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM). "OCPM needs all our help to bring the love and light of Christ to these precious souls. The Orthodox Church, through OCPM, offers both hope and healing to those living in such distress."
