16th Annual Whoopie Pie Visitation & Fellowship Luncheon

Thursday, December 14, 2023

Prison Visitation: 7:45 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.

Fellowship Luncheon 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Justice & Mercy’s ‘Circle of friends’ will visit Lancaster County Prison on December 14, 2023 to give every inmate and prison staff member a Christmas greeting, a Christmas card, and a large Whoopie Pie. Justice & Mercy’s ‘Circle of 30 friends’ visit every cell throughout the prison as they have for the past 15 years.


On one side of the card, the true meaning of Christmas is shared, along with testimonies, card sponsored advertisements, and the open invitation to reach out to Justice & Mercy if there is a problem with the criminal justice system. Justice & Mercy makes individual prison visits when time is available.

Justice & Mercy’s intent is to bring light and hope to inmates who may be struggling. In Matthew 25:36, Jesus said, “I was in prison, and ye came unto me”. Justice & Mercy wants prisoners to know that Christian people care, that the Bible is God's word and truth, and that Jesus can be their source for victory.


It has been reported that after the annual delivery of Whoopie Pies along with personally face-to-face greetings, there is a big change in the atmosphere among the inmates and staff for several days. Several inmates have testified how blessed they were by the visit, Justice & Mercy Christmas card and. Whoopie Pie!


Join us for the 16th annual Whoopie Pie Visitation & Fellowship Luncheon on Thursday, December 14, 2023!
