Find Contacts for Prison Outreach

Prison Outreach is an on-going, integral part of the Contemplative Outreach family. This important ministry is committed to support volunteers and organizations willing to serve the prison population.

Support consists of consultation, resources and access to a central database of all prison ministry activities nationwide involving  Centering  Prayer. We hope to encourage and assist those interested in beginning a prison ministry or to provide connections between practitioners already in the ministry who want to share and learn together.
