Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM) is a faith-based agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States serving those who are incarcerated and their families, and provides resources, training and support. For Orthodox Christians who have been arrested for crimes, OCPM helps them return to the Faith, offering forgiveness and reconciliation with Christ. For both Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike, OCPM provides spiritual care, enabling prisoners to find hope and purpose in their lives. OCPM applies the teachings of the Orthodox Faith to correspond with thousands of prisoners, providing them personalized spiritual care, Bibles, books, icons, catechism, and study courses. They advocate on behalf of those wishing to live an Orthodox way of life, for correctional facilities around the country to recognize the Orthodox faith, so that priests can enter prison facilities and administer the Sacraments. OCPM contacts a prisoner by mail and send pamphlets, icon cards, books, Bibles, and study courses.
