Proposition 47

RE-ENTRY SUPPORT

Often those who have lost their freedom find their faith in prison. As they are introduced to the gospel messages of love, forgiveness, and redemption, they find solace in scripture and comfort in Christ's companionship. But all too often, they lose it when they come out. They no longer have the support system they had in prison, and instead of finding friendship and forgiveness in their newfound freedom, they find neglect, indifference or, worse, contempt. The Catholic Charities Prop 47 Success Network (CCPSN) provides a unique opportunity for pastors and the faithful of Yolo-Solano to connect, comfort, and support those wanting to become part of a faith community as they re-enter society.

“God wants to help us set out again, to resume our journey, to recover our hope, to restore our trust. He wants us to keep walking along the paths of life, to realize that we have a mission, and that confinement is never the same thing as exclusion.”


– Pope Francis
