We believe that every prisoner has an ardent love and desire, a right to change and lead a normal life like any other citizen. We also believe that the society too has its responsibility towards these prisoners and their families. But in reality it is found that the society is not prepared to accept the prisoner and condemns him saying, "Once a Criminal always a Criminal'. At the same time the prisoner on his own is also not equipped to face the challenges of the society. This is where Prison Ministry comes in. It takes these prisoners into its fold, inculcates in them a desire to Change, Renew and Rehabilitate their lives, provides them a vocational training in their Rehabilitation Centres and gives them back to their families and ultimately to the society.
Prison Ministry India is a National Level Voluntary Organisation, under Justice and Pease Commission of the Catholic Bishops Conference of India. We collaborate with them in this ministry.
