It is the mission of REC to serve the Lord within our diocese by encouraging the prison inmate population to become more active Christians during and after their incarceration. Our service to the Lord is done primarily through an intense three-day program, timely follow-up meetings, supporting other religious activities within prisons and supporting re entry to the community.

The major theme for the weekend retreat is to know, love and serve the Lord; and to die to self; to rise again in the Lord; and to go forth together (the Paschal Mystery), The basic techniques used emphasize personal and community growth. A community grows by developing its members (not isolation) and by improving its environment (not avoidance).  



'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Matthew 25:40
