I was in prison and you came to visit me…Matthew 25:33 Gospel reading during Sunday of the last Judgment
The mission of the Orthodox Christian prison ministry in Alaska is to bring the love and teaching of Christ to those who are incarcerated. To let them know they are not forgotten, and through repentance and forgiveness they can draw closer to Christ, even in prison.
Two prisons currently are visited on a weekly basis, Goose Creek prison in Wasilla and Palmer Correctional facility.
At Saint Tikhon parish the prison ministry is supported by purchasing prayer books and Study Bibles twice a year, around Thanksgiving and the Great Fast. Please consider being part of this ministry and answer the call of Christ.
