Prison Ministry India, Diocese of Shimoga

The Prison Ministry wing of Shimoga Diocese conducted a Christmas Programme in the Central Prison for men - Shimoga, on 20 December 2022.  Rev. Dr Francis Serraro, Bishop of Shimoga, Sr Theresa Mascarenhas scb, Sr Shanthi Rebello scb, Sr Helen Moras scb, Teachers and members of the Mahila Sanghatane of New Town parish and students of St. Charles Kannada Medium High School were present.

The students gave a meaningful Christmas programme along with dances on various themes like patriotism and unity. In all 103 of us visited the prison for the noble cause of sharing the peace and joy of the birth of Jesus. The Superintendent Dr. Anitha, Prison Staff and inmates were given a cake as we wished them a very happy Christmas and New year 2023.

Though the prison environment was  extremely sensitive due to some recent untoward incidents in the prison, we experienced God's presence and accompaniment in allowing us to celebrate Christmas with the inmates there. Bishop gave a beautiful message to the inmates.  Soap kits were distributed to the prison inmates as Christmas gift. We returned with the feelings of joy and satisfaction as the inmates were happy that we visited them during this season of joy. All this was possible only due to the efforts and dedication to Sr Helen Moras.
