"I was in prison and you came to me." - Mt. 25:36
Kairos is an international ecumenical prison ministry that attempts to shine the light of Christ inside the darkest recesses of prison facilities.
The purpose of KAIROS is to establish a strong Christian community among the residents of correctional institutions. This is accomplished inside a given institution by a 3-day short-course in Christianity led by a team of lay persons and clergy, followed up by monthly meetings with residents who have previously attended a Kairos week-end.
The McCormick Correctional Institution (MCI) is a Level 3 (High-Security) facility operated by the SC Department of Corrections (SCDC) near McCormick, SC. Kairos has worked at this institution since 1993, and has had an amazing impact on the residents there.
