Prison Ministry Holiday Cards

Support for the Worthy Now Prison Ministry

The Holidays can be particularly difficult for those who are in prison. The Racial Justice Committee needs your help in supporting the Church of the Larger Fellowship* (CLF) and the Worthy Now Prison Ministry Network to spread holiday cheer by sending cards to the nearly 900 CLF members who are incarcerated across 42 states. 

 

How You Can Help
Bring unaddressed Holiday Cards and/or stamps to the Church beginning Sunday, October 21 through November 18. Drop off cards in the decorated Holiday Box on Sundays or place in the box in the downstairs donation closet during the week.

 

·         Cards must have plain white envelopes with no decoration.

·         Cards and envelopes should not have glitter or be embossed.

·         Cards should have a short message, such as “We have not forgotten you.” or “Thinking of you this holiday season.” 

·         Use a black pen.

·         Sign your first name but not your last. Do not include your address.

·         Cards must have plain white envelopes with no decoration.

 

Children will help with this effort on November 4, designated as a Faith in Action Sunday, as they stamp cards and write greetings during their Sunday Morning classes.

 

We will forward cards to the CLF staff and volunteers who will address cards in December.

 

*CLF is a UU congregation without walls, connecting people all over the world for spiritual growth, worship, learning, and mutual support. Its Prison Ministry supports the belief that all people are worthy of love, respect, and support — not at some future time when we are better people — but as we are right now.  https://worthynow.org/
