Hillsborough County – New Prison Ministers Needed
“For I was in prison and you visited me.”  (Mt. 25:36)
Our jails are the warehouses of the poor and as we ease out of a long hiatus due to COVID-19, we are in great need of new volunteer ministers to our incarcerated brothers and sisters in the Hillsborough County jails. These men and women have been without Catholic services (Mass, communion liturgies, prayer & Scripture services, reconciliation) for a long time.  What is required to be a minister to the incarcerated is a loving heart and the desire to serve the least among us as Jesus asks.

For information on dates and requirements, please visit the Prison Ministry page at this link:
Any returning ministers need not attend the new volunteer classes and will be accepted directly for ministry scheduling after re-certification.

Anyone interested in  volunteering either as a new or returning minister should contact Deacon Dave Lesieur at: or (813) 255-7417.
