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 Are Still On Hold
There will be NO Keryx weekend in October 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The weekly meetings are also not permitted at this time. Whenever the Keryx weekends and meetings are eventually allowed to resume, they are likely to look much different and be scaled down in the number of participants and volunteers.
Please continue to pray for the men incarcerated at Gowanda, as this must be a particularly difficult time to be incarcerated. Pray that God is using the Keryx men to minister to all the men incarcerated there. Pray also for the Administration as they do their best to keep the men safe and healthy. Pray also for the Keryx Council that continues to meet and work behind the scenes to be prepared to resume the ministry there.
