St. Luke Ministries
ANGEL TREE MINISTRIES
A program of Prison Fellowship, is an arm of St. Luke's Prison ministries that reaches out to the children and families of incarcerated persons, aiming to help meet their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. More specifically, it seeks to help to maintain a connection--or bridge the gap--between the incarcerated parent and his or her child(ren) through the sharing of gifts at Christmas in the incarcerated parent's name. We also share with the children and families the love of Jesus, especially at our birthday party for Jesus, to which all participants are invited and encouraged to attend and gifts are distributed.
