Prison Ministry


      • We are looking for books in English and Spanish on Wicca, Traditional Witchcraft, and Santeria. Books in English are fairly easy. Translations in Spanish are hard. We have found one dealer who has books by Gonzalez-Whippler in both English and Spanish. To get one copy of each to three prisons is at least $100.00. Please consider a gift on our DONATIONS page to help us with this venture. Charles has written a book on Pagan Prison Ministry Pagan Prison Ministry.
