Welcome to
Saint Dismas Guild

Saint Dismas Guild is a Catholic non-profit organization whose mission is to bring Jesus Christ, the Word of God, to the broken, the lost and the lonely, the sick and the imprisoned. St. Dismas Guild is pro-life and pro-family in union with the magisterium of the Catholic Church.

As founders of St. Dismas Guild, Deacon Ken and Marie Finn sponsor and organize pro-life and pro-family conferences in connection with Benedictus for Men and Strong Women of God for Women; lead a Bible Study each Wednesday evening; provide spiritual counseling in cooperation with the Culture of Life Family Services, and organize and pray outside Planned Parenthood in Escondido and an abortion clinic in San Marcos

"Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
As you go, make this proclamation:
The kingdom of heaven is at hand, cure the sick,
raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons.
Without cost you have received;
without cost you are to give." Matthew 10:6-8

My beloved husband has left the land of the dying at 10:34AM on February 7, 2014 and entered into the land of the living with his family around him. He went peacefully, no gasping for breathe. The time of his departure is at hand. He competed well; he has finished the race; he has kept the faith. A crown of righteousness awaits him, which the Lord, the just judge, will award him on that day, and not only to him, but to all who have longed for His appearance. My heart went with Ken. I will miss him terribly but I look forward to the day when I am caught up together with him in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Thus we shall always be with the Lord. I want to thank all of you for your support. I think I felt like Moses when he had Hur holding one arm up and Aaron holding the other one up during the battle. You have held me up. The battle has been won. It is over. No more gasping for breathe. I cannot thank you enough for your prayers, love and support.

In Jesus' love,

"For he who has become your husband is your Maker; his name is the Lord of hosts;" Isaiah 54:5

Christine Watkins Interviews Deacon Ken

Inspired by Mother Teresa of Calcutta, St. Dismas Guild began with the inspiration of Deacon Ken and Marie Finn to evangelize the poorest of the poor by writing and distributing a Catholic Bible Study (The Bread of Life) free of charge to prisoners and those who cannot afford it. Operating only by donations and volunteer workers, St. Dismas Guild now prepares, transcribes, publishes and distributes teaching aids and commentaries on Holy Scripture as well as a number of other books and materials that promote Catholic family values.
