Ortho Christian Prison Ministry

The Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry has a brochure download on their site http://theorthodoxprisonministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Pamphlet-battling-evil-thoughts-3-fold.pdf titled “Battling Evil Thoughts.”  It’s worth a read and something you can print out for yourself or make available in your parish.   

Along with the brochure download above, OCPM has other excellent spiritual literature available.  Here’s a link to their full line of resource materials:  http://theorthodoxprisonministry.org/resources/

Please consider the Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry as a place you can wisely invest in your ”eternal savings plan.”  Visit their uplifting website to learn more.  Here is a link to get you going:  http://theorthodoxprisonministry.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/One_Pager_2013.pdf. 

You might gain some ideas to share for the Sunday of the Last Judgment when visiting those in prison is mentioned in the Gospel reading. 


Coming soon:  OCPM is about to unveil details for its Lenten Youth Project.  What I’ve heard of it sounds really neat so as soon as I get the details, I’ll be sure to share them with you!  It’ll be a positive and practical way to expose young people to this vital ministry, giving them a way to invest themselves through prayer and sacrificial giving during the season of repentance. 
...inasmuch as you did it to one
of the least of these My brethren,
you did it to Me. 

God’s peace,
Pres. Candace
