Compassion is a prison ministry organization with a mission of "helping death row prisoners live connected and fruitful lives". The organization publishes the bi-monthly Compassion newsletter which is written and edited by death row prisoners and sent to all 3,100 death row prisoners in the United States. The organization is coordinated and overseen by an outside board which meets monthly at Saint Rose.

Saint Rose parishioners are encouraged to join in the monthly Compassion meetings held in the Walz Center. Your help is needed in coordinating this national outreach. For more information contact parishioner Fred Moor at 419-874-1333.
