Kairos Prison Ministry
(“I was in prison and you visited me”, Matthew 25:36)
Kairos is an ecumenical prison ministry program with the mission to bring Christ’s love to incarcerated individuals by holding retreats within the prison chapel twice a year. For some, this opportunity is the first time they hear of God’s loving forgiveness. This volunteer program is an off-shoot from the Cursillo movement, at the request of the National Cursillo Center, and is supported by various denominations. Our 50 member teams that go into the prison consist of Episcopalian, Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist, Church of God and non-denominational Christians.
In our area, there are two prisons which accept the Kairos Ministry, one is Okeechobee Correctional Institution (OCI) and the other is Martin Correctional Institution (MCI).
If you would like to know more about this ministry, and would like to volunteer for future teams, please contact Jim Couillard.
