OCPM has created an array of church programs at different levels of engagement to make it possible for every Orthodox Church in the United States to love and serve the incarcerated near them.

Ministry built to restore the lives of those in prison by establishing long term relationships based in Christ

Join the Matthew 25:36 Fellowship, our community of monthly givers, to bring Christ to those behind bars every single month.

Spring reading for you and those in prison

OCPM publishes our own Orthodox books and icons to meet strict prison facility standards, and every purchase you make allows us to continue to send these books behind bars for FREE.
