Mission Statement

The Scripture that sums up the mission of St. Dismas Guild is Matthew 10:6-8; "Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.  As you go, make this proclamation:  The kingdom of heaven is at hand, cure the sick,  raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons.  Without cost you have received;  without cost you are to give." 

St. Dismas Guild's mission is to help people know God Our Father through His Son Jesus by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit contained in God's Word, Holy Scripture. Its mission is primarily to minister to Prisons, Families, and Pro-life advocacy.

The objective of St. Dismas Guild, a Catholic non-profit organization,  is to prepare, transcribe, publish and distribute teaching aids and commentaries on Holy Scripture and to go out and search for the broken, the lost, the lonely, the hurting, the addict, and the sick and bring them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and continued growth by the power of the Holy Spirit through Sacred Scripture, Church Teaching, and the Sacraments. The ministry publishes and distributes teaching aids and commentaries on Holy Scripture, as well as other books and materials that promote Catholic family values. St. Dismas Guild is a prison, pro-life and pro-family ministry in union with the magisterium of the Catholic Church. es.
