The Prison Apostolate of the Archdiocese of New York ministers to those who are incarcerated and to the members of their family. The Apostolate assists in the placement of Catholic Chaplains in all of the correctional facilities within the ten (10) counties of the Archdiocese of New York. It further advocates on behalf of the ministry and the interests of our Catholic Chaplains as well as those of the Church in the field of corrections and in related areas. It facilitates the recruitment and the placement of prison ministry volunteers. It addresses issues and matters of public policy pertaining to corrections, parole, pardons, and re-entry. It also undertakes to be of service to those who serve in these areas, especially those who administer and staff correctional facilities.
