The 2016 Get on the Bus Fathers Day Celebration at California’s San Quentin Prison brought many families together. Get on the Bus, a program of the Center for Restorative Justice Works, was founded by two Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet: Suzanne Jabro and Suzanne Steffen.

The stories and photos from the day are truly heart-warming and illustrate that the love of fathers and families transcend circumstances.
