Our ordering process has been updated.
If you have ordered any of our materials in the past or are considering placing an order, we want to make you aware that our ordering process has changed slightly.
As you may know, in order to give prisoners spiritual support during their incarceration, Dismas Ministry provides prisoners with the free Catholic scripture, faith and prayer resources they need to restore their relationship with God and the Church.
As an organization that is run completely by donations, we provide our resources in the spirit of Christ’s gospel, “What you have received freely, give freely” ~ Matthew 10:8.
Ordering Process for Prisoners
If a prisoner would like to receive any of our materials, they must write to us directly to request a materials brochure. Once we receive their request, we will mail them a materials brochure with an authorization form to be completed by the facility. Once we receive the completed brochure and authorization form, we then send the requested items at no charge. Mailing Address: Dismas Ministry PO Box 070363 Milwaukee, WI 53207.
Ordering Process for Prison Chaplains and Prison Ministers
We also provide chaplains and prison ministers with these same free Catholic resources. We are an organization that is run completely by donations therefore, we ask that if your organization or group has a budget for these needed materials and can help support our mission, please order through our online store.
If you do not have the financial means to purchase these items please place your order by completing the contact form on our website.
We will no longer accept requests via email. All requests for our Catholic resources MUST be made through the contact form on our website or ordered through our website store.
Ordering Process for the General Public
Our mission also includes all who suffer the effects of crime: victims and their loved ones, as well as prisoners, those released from prison, and the entire community. We do request that, if funds allow, individuals place their orders through our website store. If any member of the public would like to receive any of our materials at no cost, requests for these materials must be made through the contact form on our website.
From time to time we receive requests for items that we do not offer or keep in stock. While we’ve tried in the past to provide these items, it has become increasingly difficult to do so. Therefore, we are only accepting requests for the items listed in our Inmate Services webpage or in our website store.
Thank you for being valuable members of our Prison Ministry Network. The good you do in the world is exemplified by the good works you do in our communities. You are our feet on the ground and help us spread the Word of God as the Gospel calls us to do!
