Don't Miss "Redemption: Against All Odds" - Sunday, March 8

PERRYSBURG, OH—You won’t want to miss this moving program, sure to inspire your Lenten journey. Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo’s Jail & Prison Ministries is hosting this double presentation on Sunday, March 8, from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. inside Saint John XXIII’s new Catholic Church building, 24250 Dixie Highway, Perrysburg, OH.

This free program, “Redemption: Against All Odds, features two moving accounts and is open to people of all faiths. When all seemed lost, hope is restored and new life in Christ Jesus created! Please reserve your seat by registering online. 

Rev. Herb Weber, founding pastor of Saint John XXIII, will share his experiences working with death-row prisoners at Mansfield Correctional Institution and accompanying one man as his personal chaplain to his execution at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, Ohio. It is an overwhelming story Father Herb rarely tells.

Johnny Harvey, convicted of homicide and released after 32 years of incarceration, will share his witness testimony about being saved through the love of prison ministry volunteers. When all seemed lost—hope was restored and a new life through Christ Jesus was the result. A moving story of a Redeemed Life!

The event will be streamed live at www.stjohn23.org/watch-live for those unable to attend.

Deacons attending will be eligible for 3 CEUs. For more information, contact Deacon Ed Irelan, Catholic Charities Justice Ministry Coordinator at 419.214.4958 or eirelan@toledodiocese.org.

In 2019, over 10,000 incarcerated men and women benefited from Catholic Charities Diocese of Toledo’s Jail & Prison Ministry Masses/Communion Services, ALPHA and Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) classes, Rosary prayers and worship in Lima, Mansfield, Stryker and Toledo correctional facilities.
