Keryx is a lay led, non-profit, inter-denominational, Christian based prison ministry using the Cursillo method, designed to be conducted in any correctional institution without substantive change in format or procedure.
The purpose of Keryx Prison Ministry is the Christianization of the correctional institution through the actions of small apostolic prayer support groups of prison residents, trained and encouraged by Keryx volunteers, working within their environment.
Keryx Programs at Gowanda Are Cancelled
Keryx weekends and weekly meetings have been on hold for the past year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. In addition, the Gowanda Correctional Facility is slated for closing at the end of March 2021. The Keryx of Gowanda ministry is praying and discerning where to go from here.
Please continue to pray for the men incarcerated at Gowanda as they are moved to other prisons. Pray that God will use them to minister to the men at their new facilities. Pray also for the officers and administration as they do their best to keep the men safe and healthy. And finally, please pray for the Keryx Council as they try to determine the future of this ministry.
