INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW FORMED

 

 

Restorative Justice Ministry

The Restorative Justice Ministry of the Archdiocese ministers to those in prison and those affected by crime.

At Christmas, everyone wants to send Christmas cards to family and friends. Can you join us in providing new, blank cards that incarcerated men and women can fill out and mail?

Our annual Drive supplies cards to people in San Francisco and Marin County Jails, as well as juveniles in facilities in San Francisco and San Mateo.

The cards can be commercial products or homemade, in English or Spanish, religious or secular.

The goal this year is 2,000 cards. Please bring or mail them to the Chancery at the following  address, by December 13th.

(Any monetary donation enclosed will help cover costs for this ministry)
