CCI, Lewis University launch prison ministry training program

The Catholic Conference of Illinois and Lewis University have teamed up to develop a Prison Ministry Leadership Curriculum. Students participate in workshops and online classes during the 15-month program, which culminates in certification from the American Catholic Correctional Chaplains Association, an organization accredited by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Students from across the state met for their first workshop in August 2013, and will complete the program in October 2014
