Ministry of Friendship

Ministry of Friendship

Ministry of Friendship encourages the faithful to extend the hand of friendship and to get involved in a high degree of commitment with an ex-prisoner through fellowship and ‘walking together’.

An individual who would like to become involved in the Ministry of Friendship will be required to take the Friends of Dismas training. The organizations we work closely with, like Circles of Support, Correctional Service of Canada and others may also offer their own programs to prepare volunteers for this type of personalized outreach.

The Dismas Fellowships which are held in several cities in Ontario provide an excellent opportunity for someone considering this type of commitment . Please click here to find out more about the Dismas Fellowship.

Some examples of the Ministry of Friendship are:

  • Ministry of Listening without judgement
  • Walk together offering love & friendship
  • Emmaus Partners (1:1 support)
  • Circle of Support (Group Support)
