“Until you put your faith into action …”

Lois Thomas grew up Catholic and was well versed in Jesus’s teachings.
But His “what you did for them, you did for Me” discourse never really clicked with her until she stepped through the gates into a prison 23 years ago.
“Because until you put your faith into action, you’re just going through the motions,” said Mrs. Thomas, a member of Immaculate Conception parish in Jefferson City, to about 350 people at the Missouri Catholic Conference’s 2019 Annual Assembly.
She was one of four long-time Catholic advocates, representing each of Missouri’s dioceses, who spoke during the general session at the assembly.
Mrs. Thomas is a regular visitor at the Algoa Correctional Center (ACC) and other prisons, helping with Residents Encounter Christ (REC) weekends and monthly fellowships, the Legion of Mary, and Mass.
