Prison Ministry Book Apostolate

The Fairfax County Detention Center is in need of educational and leisure reading material for both men and women. Requests include paperbacks and magazines on men’s health, women’s health, fashion, cooking, sports, etc. Of course, Bibles and inspirational Catholic paperbacks are most welcome! Reading materials in Spanish and Vietnamese would also be appreciated. The following stipulations apply: no hardcover books, nothing with staples, magazines not older than one year. Donations will be collected throughout the year. Materials may be dropped off at the Parish Office. Please be sure to indicate that they are for the Prison Ministry: Book Apostolate. Please pray for the men and women at the Detention Center, that their hearts will be open to the working of the Holy Spirit in their lives, and that their period of incarceration will bear fruit. Please keep their families in your prayers as well. Thank you!
