Welcome to ICCPPC

To bring the worldwide Church a greater awareness and sensitivity to the problems of people in prison, the Commission stimulates the creation and encourages the growth of Catholic prison chaplaincies all over the world.

Together with the respective Episcopal Conference and the local Ordinary it offers the needed support. As an NGO with "Special Consultative Status" the ICCPPC send representatives to the United Nations.
There are also contacts to other movements and organisations who minister to people in prison.

For Justice and Mercy

Publications on an international level and addressing prison chaplaincy from different angles are rare.

For Justice and Mercy offers international texts on the position of prison chaplaincy and examples from the praxis.

The initiative for this publication was taken by the board of ICCPPC to pay extra attention to its 65 years existence, and to the Year of Mercy 2016.
