Huntington County Jail Ministry
Parishioners from Ss. Peter & Paul have built a strong team that meet once a month to build community and hold one another accountable. Because the jail does not allow for pastoral ministry, the volunteers decided that their time and energy is best spent on helping inmates transition back into society. A Ministry of Social Care, created by the Ss. Peter & Paul parish team along with other Christian churches in the area. This ministry is supported by the K of C Women’s Auxiliary Group and help in the following ways:
- Respond to the individual needs of the inmates upon release. Many members personally donate or purchase the needed items.
- Created a brochure that lists all of the services provided for meeting their immediate and basic needs. The jail makes this information known to inmates and the brochures are provided to the officers in the jail and parole officers.
- Provide Food/Gift baskets to law enforcement officials in an attempt to build relationships and to show appreciation for what they do
- Supports an annual book drive for inmates
