Prison Ministry

Prison Ministry

In support of the On the Rise Bakery that is sponsored by the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, we conduct a Thanksgiving Pie Sale in November and we have the ROPE (Reaching Our Potential Everyday) program visit in our Gathering Space every spring.  ROPE focuses on helping men and women who have been recently released from prison or completed substance abuse treatment.  The program teaches baking skills and provides a safe and supportive environment for each person to regain their life. 

We are also hoping to expand this ministry by conducting clothing drives of socks and/or coats as well as cleaning supplies to help those who are seeking a fresh start.
