The Restorative Justice and Prison and Jail Ministry Committee 

Our mission is to inform and educate people in the Joliet Diocese of the needs of those affected by crime and the Criminal Justice System and to work for systemic change. We challenge parishes and individuals to assist, minister to, and act to heal victims and their families, those incarcerated and their families, as well as the entire community.

As heralds of the Good News of Jesus and grounded in Catholic Social Teaching, the Joliet Diocese Restorative Justice Committee, promotes justice, forgiveness, and mercy. We affirm and celebrate the dignity of all people. We reach out to persons who are victims, incarcerated, ex-offenders, jail and prison staff, the families of all involved and to the community at large.
