The Jail ministry consists of volunteers with compassion willing to prepare approximately 575 Gift Bags for men, women and juveniles incarcerated during the Christmas Season. These gifts bags consist of magazines, puzzle books, soft covered novels, religious pamphlets, playing cards, Christmas Cards, individually wrapped hard candy. These gift bags provide a practical symbol of the love of God for all of His people. The items, books, religious and secular magazines, cards, candy provide a diversion as well as a spiritual opportunity for reflection during the season of the Lord's birth. The Jail Ministry usually meets at least three times Between Thanksgiving and Christmas preparing the Gift Bags.
If you wish to provide or help with this wonderful endeavor, please call the Parish Office at 753-3359.
