What is the Dismas Journey?
The Dismas Journey is an interactive, 90 minute conversation about incarceration and barriers to re-entry faced by returning citizens, ways that parishioners can get involved to help, and ways that employers can grow their business by giving people a second chance.  The Dismas Journey is named for Saint Dismas, the "good thief" who was crucified next to Jesus.  The process is sponsored by St. Vincent de Paul, the HELP Program, Catholic Social Action Office, and Advocates for Justice Parish Collaborative.

Who Should Attend?
Individuals interested in learning more about the barriers returning citizens face and ways they can get involved.  Business owners, executives, HR managers and others who would like to learn about the benefits of hiring returning citizens.
Doors open at 6:45 p.m., program begins at 7:00 p.m.                      
Light refreshments will be served.
