Residents Encounter Christ (REC)

REC encourages incarcerated individuals to remember that God’s love and mercy is unending by emphasizing personal commitment and developing a personal relationship with Christ.

PMUNY supports REC in five update New York Correctional Facilities: Attica, Auburn, Groveland, Livingston and Wende.

REC is typically a three day spiritual retreat offering the following themes:

  • Day 1: “Dying to Self,”
  • Day 2: “Rising with Christ” and
  • Day 3: “Going Forth,” living the Pascal Mystery.

REC focuses on God’s unending love and reconciling mercy.

REC encourages incarcerated individuals to know Christ’s love and peace and to share it with others during and after incarceration.
