After months of prayer, and through the intercession of St. Maximilian Kolbe and St. Therese (the little flower), a group of men from the Texas Hill Country began ministering the Word of God in prisons throughout the great state of Texas.

Led by Gods call through the corporal works of mercy to visit those imprisoned, these men began ministry with the creation of the St. Maximilian Kolbe Prison Ministries.

These retreats have enriched and reinvigorated the spiritual lives of hundreds of inmates throughout the state of Texas. 

Today, men and women from all over the state continue to visit those in prison on a weekly basis. Books and other literature are brought into the units to help facilitate learning and understanding of the Catholic Faith.  Many of the inmates open their heart to the word of God and begin to make a positive change in their lives.
