Prison Ministry in Mulchén yields fruit

CHILE, Luis Valdebenito Celedón •

The Men’s Branch from Los Ángeles has chosen to carry out a concrete and very meritorious apostolate from its’ beginnings. They visit the Mulchén Preventive Detention Center every Saturday from 10:00 to 12:00. Currently between fifteen to twenty inmates – out of 150 – benefit from this apostolate.

In December, Bishop Felipe Bacarreza confirmed ten inmates in the Preventive Detention Center Chapel. Gendarmerie authorities, relatives of the confirmands, and the prison population attended the ceremony.

The Blessed Mother established herself in the Preventive Detention Center Chapel, after going on pilgrimage for a month in the interior of the prison. The Los Ángeles Women’s Branch gave the picture, and it was blessed during a Covenant Mass. The inmates supported this activity by working in prayer, orally as well as in writing, offering, and praying according to their needs.
