The Prison Ministry of India unit at San Thome cathedral got together this Sunday to celebrate Prison Ministry day. A special collection was made at all the Sunday Masses for this ministry.
Members of each unit are involved in a few activities – they visit prisons and talk and counsel inmates, they pray for them, help host a Mass on campus and provide aid to those who need medical treatment.
Besides prisons like the one in Puzhal, they also cover vigilance homes and homes for juveniles.
The units are small in strength and members are from the parish community.
