OCPM Offers Helping Hand to Local Families

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, the staff at our OCPM headquarters wondered, “What can we do to help someone in need?” We called the local jail, and they put us in touch with a nonprofit that donates Thanksgiving meals to families with a loved one in jail. We signed up to help deliver the food, and went to pick up boxes of turkeys, canned goods, and fresh produce. Each box had enough food for several meals. We met some wonderful families along the way. At one house, a young boy smiled at us as we approached. “Is that box heavy?” he asked. “Yes!” we answered. And then he...

Exorcism in the Haunt of Demons

If you ask Fr Ted Bobosh how he became involved in prison ministry, his answer is humbling in its simplicity: He was asked. Men in prison began contacting him—some wrote, others called—asking him to visit. To this day he doesn’t know how they found him. Yet once they reached out to him, he never considered it a choice. “Once they contacted me, there was never any question in my mind that I should go and see them. If they’re asking, I go.” In the nine years since, Fr Ted has continued to respond. Recently he baptized a man in prison. His account of that event is a must-read, as...
