The Christmas bus - Grand Priory of America

When I was in Prison You Came to Visit Me

For the past ten years the American Grand Commandery of the South has acted on our Lord’s parable of the Sheep and the Goats (Matthew 25:31-46).  The Commandery, working through New Orleans Catholic Charities, funds a large motor coach to bring the families of persons incarcerated in Louisiana’s Angola prison for a Christmas visit with their loved ones.  The prison is several hours away from New Orleans and often families lack the resources to undertake such a long trip.  

Commander Michie Bissell DCLJ reports “It is our joy to help.”
