This chapter discusses Kairos Prison Ministry International (KPMI), which was founded in Florida in 1976 by Catholic cursillista and attorney Tom Johnson. It is currently active in thirty-three U.S. states, as well as in Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, and South Africa. According to John Thompson, Kairos's executive director from July 2001 to April 2012, 250,000 incarcerated men and women had been through a KI weekend in 350 KPMI communities. As of December 2012, there were 400 active KPMI communities in 32 U.S. states and 50 international communities in 9 other countries. Each year, 25,000 inmates and family members in the United States and abroad experience a KI or Kairos Outside (KO) weekend. The KI weekends, retreats held inside medium- to maximum-security prisons, last from Thursday to Sunday evening and are based on the Catholic Cursillo de Cristiandad method that originated in Mallorca in 1944 and came to the United States in 1957.
