"Reaching Out to Families of the Incarcerated" Draws a Crowd at Joy of the Gospel Conference

July 3, 2017

A break-out session entitled "Reaching Out to Individuals and Families Affected by Incarceration" drew much interest at this week's Joy of the Gospel in America Convocation in Orlando, Florida. Deacon Edward Farias, Karen Clifton from the Catholic Mobilizing Network, and Debbie McDermott, Restorative Justice Director for the California Catholic Conference, presented the session.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops convened the gathering of key leaders from dioceses and Catholic organizations from all across the country in order to assess the challenges and opportunities of our time, particularly in the context of the Church in the United States.
