Prison ministry is a unique form of ministry that requires specialized training. For more than 30 years, OCPM has trained clergy and laity with tools and resources in how to have a vital parish-based ministry. We have also shown parishes how they can best help the former prisoner who is returning to the community.

Our prison chaplains and speakers have decades of experience in prisons at every security level. They are available for one-on-one coaching for clergy, retreats, and training sessions.

In person training and coaching

OCPM trains clergy and laity in prison ministry. We are available for phone consultations or in-person seminars and workshops. Reach out to us to speak with our prison ministry experts or access our publications and training resources.
