Leadership personnelThe Office of Corrections Ministry coordinates sacramental pastoral care for Catholics who are incarcerated in the prisons and jails in the Archdiocese and in re-entry. A key aspect of this mission is the supporting parishes with resources about social justice issues of this ministry.

Currently about 200 parishioners volunteer within the ministry in the Archdiocese, and the number is growing. Check out the Facebook page at ArchindyCorrections for regular posts!


The Corrections Committee meets regularly and plays an active role involved in planning and implementation. Members include:

Nancy Audretch (St. Bartholomew, Columbus), Deacon John Cord (St. Ambrose, Seymour), Deacon Steve Gretencord (Sacred Heart of Jesus, Terre Haute), Susan Hall (St. Benedict, Terre Haute), Fr. Doug Hunter (St. Malachy, Brownsburg), Fr. Jeremy King (St. Meinrad), David Liebel (Director of Religious and Volunteer Services, IN Dept of Corrections), Michelle Ross (Nativity, Indianapolis), Chris Stimac (St. Jude, Indianapolis), Ed Witulski (Trusted Mentors, Indianapolis)
