The Prison Ministry is dedicated to visit, serve and minister to the imprisoned men and women in West Tennessee.
The Catholic Diocese of Memphis Prison Ministry team serves the various prisons and correctional institutions in West Tennessee with compassionate lay volunteers who reach out, visit and minister to the incarcerated.
A dedicated team of Catholic clergy, lay men and women in the Diocese of Memphis who provide support, guidance and a Catholic presence to the inmates at state, county and local prisons.
This program connects parents with their children through reading. Volunteers record the voice of a mother who is incarcerated as she reads a story for her child. The recording and the book read in the recording are mailed to the child’s caregiver who shares with the child. The following support is needed:
Donations of children’s new or gently used pre-school to young adult books;
Financial donations to cover postage of sending recordings and books to families;
Volunteers to deliver books to the prison and to help with recordings.
