of these men, who are part of the Body of Christ, will never get a
chance to attend a real Church Liturgy. They will never smell the
incense nor hear the bells, nor hear the sound of the Talanton calling
them to worship. They will never hear the beautiful haunting nuances in
Byzantine Chant. They will never taste the Artoclasia after a Vigil,
They will never be part of a procession at Pascha nor see the lights of

Christ. A living cell that the Body canít do without, yearning for the
life and light that flows from other cells in the body. You can help to
bring life and encouragement to these precious souls
About St Seraphimís Fellowship
have a ministry to Inmates on the Death Row. We visit more than 400 men
on the row. We send them teaching lessons on the passions and true
repentance. We are also seeking volunteers to write to the prisoners.
Many of the men are in the catecumenate and some are baptised. We need
donations of money for books, bibles [leather only], Orthodox Magazine
Subscriptions, prayer ropes, Icon Cards, etc.
Do you have family or friends in prison?
you or someone you know have family or friends in prison anywhere and
you would like this ministry to write to them, then please send us a
private text message with all the appropriate information and we will
contact the prisoner with words of faith and encouragement. While we
are an Orthodox Ministry, we welcome the opportunity to communicate
with people of all faiths.
