Catholic Reentry Accompaniment
As Catholics are released from incarceration, we offer to walk
with them (accompaniment), and endorse and introduce them to
the parish pastor, deacon and others capable of supporting full
participation in the Sacramental Life of the Catholic Church.
Many leaving incarceration are burdened with obstacles that inhibit
successful employment, housing, transportation, food, etc. Often, as
in many of our busy lives, we struggle to nurture our Spiritual needs.
While this is not a formal mentoring program, it can support such programs as Mentoring4Success and other similar efforts focused on the practical and tangible needs of this population by offering spiritual food for the journey as well as the nurturing of a Christian community.
SDPO seeks to provide a companion to ACCOMPANY any Catholic desiring to become actively engaged or to complete RCIA and be welcomed into the Catholic Church.
