Prisoners Sunday notes from Catholic Prison Charity

Pact (Prison Advice & Care Trust) magazine at back of church tells a Father’s story of imprisonment and the impact it has had on his family.

This year, on Sunday 11th October, as a Church we mark Prisoners’ Sunday. It is a day to direct our thoughts and prayers to prisoners, their families and their children. Prisoners’ Sunday is the occasion to make a difference and be there for those who most need our support.

North East News Item

Three ships are moored off the Tyne river – the subject of a recent TV news item. Paul Atkinson A.O.S. chaplain was interviewed regarding the seafarers welfare. The seafarers have been off shore for three months with little information when they will be able to return to their families.

Supporting them with our prayers and financial donations are important.


The last word

Hope is always locked into the present moment, imperfect as it is, because that is the only place where you meet the mystery of God.


A prayer for prisoners


It is so hard to get up when you feel you have dropped off not just God's radar, but everyone else's as well.

 It is hard to have faith when so many things seem to have gone wrong, when you are paralysed by fear of the future.

But this is not all that there is; the light of God's presence shines in the darkest place and cannot be overcome.


Loving Lord, you meet us wherever we are.

 Give to all those in prison the strength they need to survive each day and each night.

Set them free from the power of darkness, we beseech you.

 In Jesus' name, Amen.
