New Life Ministry is here to give people who are dealing with being incarcerated, hope, healing, and support.

The setting provides a structured way for people to share their stories and gain perspective from others through their experiences. It also provides support and knowledge of what is happening to their loved one in prison when they have no clue as to what is going on due to this being their first time dealing with incarceration.

New Life Ministry is for all those who need to know that they do not have to go through it alone.

Free.

We meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at St. Timothy Catholic Church Hall.

Kolbe Prison Ministries of San Antonio (KPM SA) is a regional branch of the Texas-wide Kolbe Prison Ministries (KPM) Catholic organization (sometimes referred to as ‘Kolbe Missions’) founded several years ago in Fredericksburg. KPM SA ministers to incarcerated men and women in five Texas State prisons and jails near San Antonio, and other detention facilities in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

We’ve found that offenders have a much greater chance of staying out of prison and making lasting changes in their lives if we help them develop a strong faith and offer hope for a better way of living through the truth of the Catholic Church. Kolbe Prison Ministry volunteers make up to three weekly visits to the five state Penitentiaries in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

How to Support Kolbe Prison Ministries SA

There are several ways to help and support this life-changing ministry, including:

  • Pray
  • Donate
  • Volunteer
  • Recommend (tell others about us)
