PORTLAND —  A virtual gathering for those curious about prison ministry, have served or currently serve in the ministry, or have an interest in getting involved, is to be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 17.

The event will feature speaker Fr. Dustin Feddon of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, Florida. Feddon is an experienced chaplain at a Florida state prison and executive director of Joseph House, which serves people re-entering the community. He is also pastor of two Florida parishes and a speaker for the Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition.

Parish Social Ministry supports the work of jail and prison ministries from parishes across the diocese. Each month, more than 125 parishioners journey to more than 600 inmates in Maine’s correctional facilities.

Those who wish to attend can email Deacon Frank Daggett, director of Catholic Charities Maine’s Parish Social Ministry, at [email protected].
