Prison Ministry

The mission of the Saint Silouan Prison Ministry Team is to bring the love and encouragement of Christ to the inmates at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla, Washington. The Penitentiary is home to approximately 2,500 male felons in minimum, medium, close, and maximum custody.   On the second Sunday evening of each month, the Team brings the liturgical life of the Church (through Vespers, Gospel and Epistle readings, and homilies followed by lively question and answer sessions) to inmates in two close custody units.  The Team is also a link to Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry where inmates can get free Orthodox Study Bibles, books, pamphlets, icons, and a newsletter.  For more information about this ministry, please contact Fr. Daniel Reese or Lucy Henderson.

“By Divine Providence, the diaspora emerged in order that the light of Orthodoxy would shine throughout the world.” — St John of Shanghai and San Francisco.

Sixty years ago, Saint John shepherded his flock of Russian refugees in the Philippines. Now a Russian Orthodox mission is working to share the fullness of the Faith.

Fr. Silouan, the priest at the mission, was a member of St. Silouan Orthodox Church before accepting the call to serve the people of the Philippines.
