Second Sunday After Pentecost: Summer Camp for Children of Incarcerated Parents

June 6, 2015

Children of incarcerated parents are the invisible victims of crime. The effect of having an incarcerated parent is often damaging, says Val Hymes, editor of Prison Ministry Network News. It can lead to poor grades, discipline problems, drugs, gangs, and even prison. In response, more than 20 Episcopal parishes and dioceses are engaged in ministries with these children through summer camps, after school homework help, and various other activities.
