The Joan Chittister Fund for Prisoners was initiated in 2006 in response to numerous requests for spiritual materials from prison chaplains and individual prisoners. Each year over $60,000 worth of FREE publications by Sister Joan Chittister are sent to prison chaplains and volunteers ministering in 90 prisons across the United States. The Fund is in close contact with this network of chaplains who personally distribute the materials received. Individual requests from those in prison are also honored.
The Fund is especially intent on getting the monthly publication, The Monastic Wa by Joan Chittister, into the prisons because chaplains find this interfaith resource ideal for personal and group reflection.
The Joan Chittister Fund for Prisoners depends on the support of individual donations.
Prisoners are the most forgotten people in society and the least served in Christianity.
For all our sakes, I’d like to change that. —Joan Chittister
