Prison Ministry


In response to Jesus command, St Silas Orthodox Prison Fellowship Society is a non-profit group of Orthodox Christians dedicated to the following goals:

  1. Visiting those in prison to incarnate the loving Presence of Jesus Christ in those we visit, regardless of who they are, what they have done, and what they believe.

  2. Supporting the Orthodox way of life for identified Orthodox Christian inmates across Canada.

  3. Raising volunteers for prison ministry in Orthodox communities across Canada.

  4. Educating CSC staff and chaplains in the unique practices and beliefs of Orthodox Christianity.


What We Do:

  • Weekly studies.

  • Monthly Divine Liturgy.

  • Monthly pastoral visits.

  • Yearly Paschal and Christmas celebrations.
