Orthodox Prison Ministry Transforms Lives

Chaplain Patrick Tutella Addressing Clergy and Laity in California.

Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM) ministers to people in prison, their families, and those who have been released from prison, responding to the Lord’s call, “I was in prison and you visited Me.” (Matthew 25:36). OCPM is an agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, the official Orthodox prison ministry in the country.

Since January 2013, Leadership 100 has awarded nearly $75,000 to OCPM in two grants. The first grant, for $20,372, funded the training of Orthodox clergy in target cities and regions. In the same way that clergy visit hospitals and nursing homes, Orthodox clergy who are trained and willing to visit people in prison are an essential part of the Church’s ministry.

Through its Leadership 100 grant, OCPM trained more than 200 Orthodox clergy in 2013 from Houston, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Northern California, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston, Dallas, Atlanta, and Denver. While many of the clergy were from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, other Orthodox jurisdictions were also well represented. In many of these cities and regions, parishes hosted events for OCPM to speak with laity too, informing and inspiring them to become involved in prison ministry. read more
