Deacon James Witulski of St. Thomas Aquinas Church is the Diocesan Liaison for Catholic Jail Ministry of Mecklenburg County. In this position, he leads volunteers who facilitate Catholic based classes at Jail Central and Jail North. The classes are open to inmates of all faiths. The classes consist of prayer, sharing and video.
A volunteer can serve one evening a month or more often. Each class has two volunteer leaders. Deacon Witulski will provide your training. The important thing to remember is that the volunteer has the opportunity to perform the Work of Mercy; "to visit the imprisoned." The Jail Ministry Volunteer has the opportunity to see the "Face of Jesus" in those he meets. He can therefore give a sense of dignity and hope and spiritual insight to those in need.
