“I was in prison and you visited me.” – Matthew 25:36

The ministry to the incarcerated of the Diocese of Rochester is a collaborative response to the Gospel. Called by the Holy Spirit, we extend the hope of reconciling love in our relationship with the offender, the victim, and their families.

The Jail Ministry Office of Parish Support Ministries seeks to support and enhance ministry to all incarcerated Roman Catholics throughout the Diocese of Rochester, by creating and implementing a pastoral response to those in our correctional facilities.
