An Open Letter
Dear American Benedictine Academy,
There are currently in excess of 3,000 prisoners in the Camp Hill State Prison located at Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. This ministry of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother has the opportunity of establishing a faithful Christian foundation in a large portion of these prisoners' lives. As you can imagine, due to the large number of people who pass through the chapel doors on any given day, there is always a need for orthodox Roman Catholic items in English ans Spanish.
Therefore, I am seeking new and used Catholic apologetics and evangelization books (including the Catechism of the Catholic Church), newspapers, magazines, audio and video tapes for our chapel library. We also need Catholic apologetics and evangelization pamphlets, tracts and Bibles for distribution to the prisoners. This material is deeply appreciated and desperately needed in this prison environment.
The Christian community at the Camp Hill State Prison is grateful for any contribution you can make. Thank you for your kindness and your prayers.
Deacon Manuel Velazquez, Chaplain
