Concilio (formerly the Christian Council for Reconciliation) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ministry with prisoners and their families during their incarceration and after their release. Concilio is made up of many volunteers: people from all walks of life, a wide cross-section of organizations, churches, religious orders and social groups who feel called by God to Christ’s ministry of reconciliation.
“When I was in prison you visited me.” Gospel of Matthew 25.26
Concilio seeks to promote reconciliation between the prisoner and God, the prisoner and self, and the prisoner and the community. At its core Concilio seeks to be a support to the volunteers who bring the work of reconciliation to life. Through newsletters, conferences, forums and other events the Council support volunteers who bring the love that heals to flesh.
