Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition
The Catholic Prison Ministries Coalition (CPMC) is a national network of organizations and individuals serving people affected by incarceration. CPMC’s goal is to recruit, train, support, and empower those called to prison ministry. Additionally, CPMC will serve as a central resource for formation and credentialing. Click here to learn more.
Three Pathways for Formation and Credentialing
NACC and the CPMC Formation Committee have developed three Pathways for formation and credentialing. These three consecutively advanced formation pathways prepare candidates for the diverse opportunities in prison ministry. Learn more about these three Pathways.
