Ministry Opportunities

Prison Ministry, Durant, Mississippi

Sister Madeline Kavanaugh, DC, is one of three sisters who live at Seton House in Durant, Mississippi. When she and Sisters Mary Walz, DC, and Sheila Conley, SC, arrived in Durant, they were overwhelmingly welcomed. There is great poverty in this area of the South. Sister Madeline serves the imprisoned and returning citizens through a collaborative effort known as the Mississippi Association for Returning Citizens (MARC).

MARC, a 501(c)3, was founded in 2019 and is headed by Dorothy Balser, MSW, as executive director. MARC, with the assistance of volunteers, works with cohorts of prisoners as they prepare for release. MARC endeavors to identify resources and establish relationships with service providers and government officials who may assist returning citizens. MARC folks also advocate for those affected by the very broken prison system.

The Durant sisters would welcome a sister volunteer to join their community and serve at MARC—either within or outside the prisons. There is much work to be accomplished and requests from different area prisons are increasing.
