Living Faith Foundation

I have no more funding available for supplies. I am completely out of Bibles, and all other reading materials...

When the typical Catholic pastor needs resources for ministry, he has the funds to buy them. Many prison chaplains - such as the jail chaplain from California quoted here - don't have that luxury: "I am the sole Catholic Chaplain in this very large (4,000 inmates!) maximum-security County Jail facility," he said. "[I have] no more funding available for supplies. Right now I am completely out of Bibles, and all other reading materials . . . More than ever because of this pandemic, we, chaplains in jails are increasingly challenged to be fund-raisers and resources-gatherers in addition to our (pastoral) responsibilities."

The Living Faith Foundation supplies quarterly issues of Living Faith and La Fe Viva free to chaplains for use in their ministry to inmates, as well as Catholic liturgical, devotional and inspirational resources to military personnel and families in need. The material supplied by the foundation includes catechisms, prayer booklets, prayer cards, and Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter devotional booklets and leaflets.

Since 1993, the Living Faith Foundation has distributed more than 200,000 booklets annually, fulfilling its mission to help people discover that the truths of the Gospel have the power to transform lives.
The work of the foundation is supported primarily by donations from Living Faith subscribers.

The foundation is a tax-exempt agency registered with the Internal Revenue Service and the Missouri Secretary of State. Donations are tax-deductible. A gift of $25, for example, allows 30 inmates to receive Living Faith for one year or pays for the distribution of more than 150 prayer booklets to inmates.

Living Faith provides brief daily Catholic devotions based on one of the Mass readings of the day. Published new each quarter, these reflections are written by women and men from a variety of backgrounds - lay people as well as clergy and religious. Learn more.
