About Memorial Kairos

Brief History:

Memorial Kairos began its Christian prison ministry inside the Memorial Unit with Kairos #1 in the spring of 1987 and since then has conducted 64 consecutive Kairos Weekends, the same number of 1 or 2-day retreats, more than 1000 Prayer & Share services, graduated more than 2000 inmates, & touched the lives of many others at the Memorial unit who have never officially participated in actual Kairos ministry functions.  The program was forced into an unexpected interruption in early 2020 due to Covid-19. Team formation meetings for Kairos #65 began once again in spring 2022 culminating once again in a full weekend retreat held April 21-24, 2022. In the past 36 years only a global pandemic has been able to pause our Kairos physical meetings inside the unit for any length of time. Even during this time the team wrote letters, sent Christmas cards, and  delivered cookies and hygiene products to the men at Memorial. Such is the scope and meaning of this ministry and its labor of love inside the maximum security Memorial Unit. As hearts are changed, inmates begin to take responsibility for their actions & volunteers have a front row seat at this miracle in progress.
