Journeys of Mercy… A bus will be traveling on Saturday July 15 to the Angola Correctional Facility. Please consider joining us as we journey with the families who will visit their loved ones & to be there as prayerful support. Please email the Respect Life Office ASAP if you are interested in riding with the families in support & prayer. For more information email email@example.com
Our spiritual work of mercy tied to a corporal work of mercy involves both a prayer commitment & outreach. We have organized the means to become a spiritual friend/pen pal to one who is in prison right now…Messages of Mercy. This will be an opportunity to provide direct encouragement to someone who very much needs it. Your identity & the identity of the prisoner will be protected. If you are interested in joining this commitment please email the Respect Life Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our other corporal works of mercy partnered with the work of Cornerstone.
-Aiding the Reentry Program by providing care packages — Packages of Mercy — to those who have just been released from prison & have no family. The care packages should include things like men's toiletries, razors, towels, new undergarments, & other basic items, plus a note of encouragement.
-Connecting interested volunteers to be mentors for children of those incarcerated…Mentors of Mercy. Those who are interested would be connected with Catholic Charities' Cornerstone Builders.
Those who wish to assist with any of the above corporal works of mercy should contact the Respect Life Office to arrange help… email@example.com
