Criminal Justice Ministry

Mission

It is our belief as Catholic people that we can bring a message of faith, hope, justice, and reconciliation to all affected by the tragedy of crime and violence whether they are offenders, victims, or public servants. The Office of Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM) for the Archdiocese of San Antonio recruits, screens, and trains volunteers from parishes throughout the archdiocese to minister both inside the walls and in the community. In order to serve this special population, we work directly with our parishes and offer formation and on-going education to help people understand the needs of those we serve. As Catholics, we are called to social ministry and must act with justice, love tenderly, serve one another, and walk humbly with God.

 An archdiocesan ministry that serves all impacted by crime in the community. It offers Catholic worship, prayer and catechetical programs for the adult and youth offenders in the federal and state prisons, county jails and juvenile centers within the Archdiocese. There are 35 facilities with more than 10,000 Catholic men, women and youth incarcerated. The ministry provides support to families, victims and all impacted by crime in the community. It also assists those returning to the community and their families with basic needs and spiritual direction.
