Catholic Prison Ministries


“I was in prison, and you visited me.”

Our tri-parish outreach to the men at Washington State Penitentiary:

  • Consists of all our priests and over a dozen lay volunteers.
  • Offers seven services a month.
  • Provides catechetical teaching, as well as Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation and other Sacraments as requested.
  • Supplies the inmates with Catholic literature, Bibles and rosaries (financed by the parishes, the Knights of Columbus and private donors).

How can you help? We’re always looking for reading materials! Gently used books (without handwritten notes) and back issues of Catholic magazines are always appreciated and will help the men grow in their faith. And even better than any book, personal encounter will show the inmates that they, too, are part of our community.

If you are interested in joining this powerful and much-needed ministry (must be 18 or older) or if you would like to donate books, magazines or other reading materials, please contact:
