Louisiana State Penitentiary Warden Burl Cain will discuss the Kairos Ministry and its impact on inmates at the state’s maximum security prison on Tuesday, Oct. 14.
The warden will speak on “Bringing the Love of Christ to Those Who Live at Angola through Kairos” at St. Aloysius Parish Hall, 2025 Stuart Ave., Baton Rouge. Doors open at 6 p.m. for dinner and socializing, and the presentation is at 6:30 p.m. followed by a panel discussion.
The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families and those who work with them, and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen, according to its website. “Kairos” is a New Testament Greek term that means “God’s Special Time” and is often expressed in Scripture as “the fullness of time.”
The event will also include testimony from former residents of Angola on how Kairos changed their lives during their weekend retreat, which Kairos conducts twice a year.
