What we do

Prison ministry supports and coordinates outreach ministry offered by parish-based volunteers to the imprisoned, offering spiritual and emotional assistance to inmates and their families.

We are a group of men and women volunteers who offer prayer services, bible study and one-on-one counseling to the youth and adults who are incarcerated in Johnson County facilities.

About Us



Read the bible to youth or adults weekly or monthly, depending on your schedule.
