Men's & Women's Kairos Inside

​Kairos Inside: is conducted within medium and maximum security institutions by well-organized and well trained volunteer teams of men and women from around Connecticut and neighboring states. They present an introductory 3 day weekend, described as a short course in Christianity. This inter-denoinational team of volunteers-both clergy and laypersons-works in cooperation with the Chaplain, who carefully selects up to 36 inmate leaders to attend. A well organized follow up program of reunions is put on every month as part of this ministry.

Who and what is  
Kairos Outside
Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. is the parent organization of a body of ministries addressing the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women and children, their families and to those who work in the prison environment. Kairos sprang from the Cursillo Movement and is supported by volunteers from Cursillo and those other movements that consider Cursillo as their root. Although a separate ministry, Kairos has received the blessing and encouragement of 4th day movements such as Cursillo, National Episcopal Cursillo, Presbyterian Cursillo, Lutheran Via De Cristo, The Upper Room's Walk To Emmaus and independently Ecumenical Tres-Dias. Kairos Prison Ministry is a ministry rather than a movement.
Kairos of Connecticut has been operating successfully in Connecticut since 1996. We have had weekend programs every year in York CI for 15 years, Osborn CI for 10 years, Manson YI 4 years. We also did 6 years in Garner CI and 5 years at Danbury FCI. Over the last 15 years almost 1500 Connecticut incarcerated men, women and youth have heard the good news of Jesus Christ through Kairos Prison Ministry. We the Kairos community has seen changed lives through the love and forgiveness they have found in Jesus Christ. The men and women of the Kairos teams have been blessed beyond their wildest dreams as they have been led by the Holy Spirit to serve and love the incarcerated.
Kairos is a ministry of the church...a ministry of the apostles whom Jesus, the Christ, has called into community and sent fourth into the environment of the correctional institution. It has been called the best example of the early church in existence today. Kairos operates 3 different programs, Kairos Inside, Kairos Outside and Kairos Torch. All 3 of these programs are active in Connecticut.
