The Prison Outreach Service Team arose out of the survey conducted in February and March of 2021 to identify the strengths and opportunities related to Principles 3 and 12 of our Vision: the presence of the Divine in us is the permanent self-giving of God to every human person (3) and we are invited to make available the gift of Centering Prayer to everyone, particularly to the needy and the marginalized (12).
Each of us has been profoundly affected by transformation (our own and others’) “inside the walls”. We have tasted new freedom from our own emotional programs for happiness through this outreach and would be glad to hear from you at email@example.com.
