Prison Ministry Outreach

We are looking for men to join us in our prison ministry outreach at Walker State Prison in Rock Spring, Georgia. We have a few men already involved as mentors to specific men in the prison, but there is a need for more Catholic mentors. Can you make a commitment to visit one of the men at WSP twice each month?
