Another week, another corporal work of mercy: visiting the imprisoned.
In a story coming soon from our Global Sisters Report project, reporter Dawn Araujo-Hawkins takes a deep dive into prison ministry led by Catholic sisters. “I do believe every single person—whether they live out their life in prison or they get out of it—is redeemed,” Dominican Sr. Mary Sean Hodges told Araujo-Hawkins.
