Today’s edition of OC Catholic Radio is all about ‘restorative justice.’ Joining host Rick Howick in-studio is a gentleman named Fred LaPuzza. Fred is the Director of the Office of Restorative Justice/Detention Ministry for the Diocese of Orange (otherwise known as RJ/DM).
Among other things, the restorative justice ministry targets those who are incarcerated in our jail systems in Orange County. RJ/DM provides 140 scheduled religious services each week in three languages, along with other pastoral-care activities such as one-on-one visits and confessions. The ministry also helps to bring awareness about their work to local parishes and the community as a whole, and advocates for laws that are in line with Catholic Social Teaching and the Gospel.
