Today on this special edition of Perspectives, Bishop Gary Gordon of Victoria, BC talks to us about prison ministry.
“The purpose of our work is to walk the ways with those incarcerated, to accompany them on their spiritual prison journey, to bring the Word of God, the Good News, the love of God to them.” These are the words of Charlette Novak, Chaplain of the Stony Mountain Institution in Winnipeg, Manitoba. “The incarcerated need to know that God loves them in spite of what they have done.” Join Fr. Thomas Rosica in this Witness interview with a remarkable woman of faith, deep Catholic Christian commitment, and compassion as she describes her vocation and mission as a prison chaplain ministering to all faiths: Catholics, Protestants, Muslims and Jews.
