Kairos Prison Ministry


Kairos Prison Ministry, which evolved from Cursillo, brings Christ’s love and forgiveness to prisoners and their families and friends. A Christian, lay-led, ecumenical, international program, Kairos uses talks, meditation, and individual and group activities to help prisoners live in a personal relationship with the living Christ, who is presented as the only total solution to salvation and change. In short, they are taught ways to turn their lives around.

Seafarers' Center

The Seafarers' Center at the Port of Houston is a “home away from home” for seafarers. Chartered in the late 1960s/early 1970s by the local maritime industry, community leaders and churches, the center provides a safe and welcoming recreational and spiritual environment on land for those who have chosen the sea as their livelihood. Many volunteers give of their time and talent to the center, which also has a team of ministers on duty. Contact the Rev. Lacy Largent at (713)672-0511 or visit www.houstonseafarers.com.
