Retreats in Prison Charis Prison Ministry of Minnesota

Purpose: The purpose of Charis of Minnesota is to present God’s reconciling love in Jesus Christ to inmates in correctional institutions. We’ve witnessed firsthand the saving grace of our living God.

Description: Charis is a non-denominational Christian ministry, made up of teams of laity and clergy who have experienced a Cursillo-type retreat (Cursillo, Walk to Emmaus, Via de Cristo, Tres Dias, Unidos en Cristo or similar weekend) and governed by a 15-member board of directors that meets monthly. . Team members are selected and trained under the guidance of Charis leadership and approved by correctional institutions.
Through a systematic, structured, Christ-centered program, the residents of correctional institutions are given the opportunity to experience spiritual renewal and to accept God’s call to live a life of Christian witness and service to one another during their stay in the institution and beyond.
