Our Focus this month is on our Prison communities.
As we support Prisons’ Week 2019 between 13-19th October, we reflect both on a new Gospel resource and on Prison reform.
Matthew: A Message of Mercy
An action-packed account of the life of Jesus and his diverse band of followers. With seven reflections written by Catholic Prison Chaplains based on this theme of justice, Matthew: A Message of Mercy takes us through Matthew’s Gospel and unpacks how God shows mercy to us, and how we’re empowered to show mercy to others.
