A gift that counts

If you can, will you please add a prisoner to your Christmas gift list and send a donation to the Annual Joan Chittister Fund for PrisonersClick here. This letter from a prison chaplain in Delaware explains why your gift is so important.

Thank you for sending Joan Chittister’s large and small 2022 Calendars. It will be a welcome gift to the intentional community of James T Vaughn’s Correctional Center in Smyrna, Delaware. I so miss being able to distribute them to our community in person this year, due to COVID restrictions still in place. However, for the past 18 months I have been able to leave The Monastic Way at the JTVCC Gatehouse for the program director to distribute, and this week I’ll be able to bundle the calendars together with December’s Monastic Way. The holiday season is the hardest time of the year, so these gifts are just in time to make the season a little more bearable for our community. May your kindness and generosity continue to return to you in abundance!
Gratefully, Janet Thompson, sfcc
