Prison Pen Pal Ministry

We are one of four parishes that will be participating in a new pen pal ministry involving the three correctional facilities within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

We are looking for parishioners who would be interested in answering the call to serve the imprisoned by “visiting” inmates through letters. The mission is to bring hope and to be a witness to the Catholic faith.

Life in prison is quite isolating and the last year has been extremely difficult with total lock downs at Ohio prisons. Inmates who attend meeting with the Director of Prison Ministry for the Archdiocese are offered the possibility to join the new pen pal program. Many inmates have already requested receiving a pen pal. They are quite eager to write and receive letters.

If you have an interest in learning more about this opportunity to serve those in great need please contact Amy Whitaker at or 513-871-8221. Our hope is to have the participants from our parish oriented as soon as possible so that they can begin writing letters. Thank you for considering your role in this mission.
