Prison Sunday 2023
In 2016, during the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis initiated Prison Sunday as part of the Jubilee for Prisoners. The observance aims to nurture hope, emphasising the transformative power of God’s love despite past wrongs.
On the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary, the Catholic Church in Australia observes Prison Sunday, shedding light on the challenges faced by prisoners and acknowledging the vital role of prison chaplains.
