Prism is an outreach ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles 

 

We are engaged in spiritual care with the incarcerated community in the L.A. County jails.

Prism advocates for positive change in the system of mass incarceration and we are committed to bringing a voice to the struggle of the marginalized in our society. Guided by our baptismal vows to seek and serve Christ in all persons, we strive for justice and peace among all people and promote the respect and dignity of every human being.

We pray for an end of all violence and advocate for the abolition of the death penalty in the United States and throughout the world.

 

Our ministry is a ministry of many facets...

of listening to anxiety, fear, longing and hope.
of presence in the face of loneliness and isolation.
of sharing God's unfailing love.
of prayer for wholeness and restoration.
of sacraments with inmates and families

 

of personal advocacy for individuals.
of collective advocacy for our society.
of transformation in kinship.
of healing for the world.

 

Our Vision

A world where all people are restored to wholeness through the love of God.

 

Our Mission

To respond to the mandate of the Gospel to visit those who are in jail.
To provide spiritual and practical support as inmates journey towards healing and wholeness.
To proclaim the needs of the marginalized to our churches and our communities.
 

 

 

Join us on a nine-minute journey into the jails.
