The National Convocation of Jail and Prison Ministry
The Convocation this year will be in Orlando, FL on May 19-21, 2013. More information will be posted soon. Check back often for updates.
The NATIONAL CONVOCATION OF JAIL AND PRISON MINISTRY brings advocates of “Restorative Justice” together most every year and it is having a powerful and positive effect on all those involved. For us, Restorative Justice means that the offender as well as the victim and the whole community must be restored after a crime has done its damage.
The 2014 Convocation in Berkeley will be hosted by Rev. Evelyn Vigil and her committee. Once plans are completed, information will be posted here similar to the information below that is about the 2013 Convocation just concluded in Orlando.
The Theme of the 2013 Convocation in Orlando was:
BUILDING BRIDGES...NOT WALLS.
The Convocation was hosted by the Diocesan Council of Orlando's Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Featured: Keynote Speaker
SISTER HELEN PREJEAN

In addition to the Convocation’s MISSION STATEMENT and its PURPOSES AND GOALS, these POSITION PAPERS have become a way of defining the Convocation. POSITION PAPERS should be in the Spirit of the Convocation. POSITION PAPERS should be in the Spirit of Working Together. POSITION PAPERS should approach each Proposal with a Spirit of Reality.
