“Building Bridges, Not Walls” is the theme for the 32nd Annual National Convocation of Jail and Prison Ministry. This year’s Convocation is sponsored by St. Vincent de Paul Orlando.

The three-day event is set for May 19-21, 2013 at the Drury Inn and Suites, located at 7301 West Sand Lake Road in Orlando.

We invite you to join us and hear the stories of individuals who have touched the lives of incarcerated individuals – or who themselves have felt a profound impact due to the kindness of others.

Featured speakers include Desmond Meade; Dale and Susan Recinella; Jack and Jean Canatsey; Jim Liske and Travis Vining. Our keynote speaker is Sister Helen Prejean, whose book, “Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty” was the inspiration for the major motion picture “Dead Man Walking.” (Note: Sister Prejean’s speech is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC and will be held on Tuesday, May 21 at 7 pm, at Holy Family Catholic Church (5125 S Apopka Vineland Rd, Orlando, FL 32819)
