Prison inmates helped by gift of CTS 2013 Missals

Belmarsh Prison

As part of our efforts to encourage participation in the Year of Faith, CTS has been giving away our 2013 Sunday Missal containing all the Masses for the liturgical year in calendar order.

We recently gave a batch to the chaplaincy at Belmarsh prison in London – which contains those considered to be some of the city’s most dangerous offenders – and received the following letter from the chaplain:

Yesterday on my arrival at Chaplaincy office, I found two big boxes containing 60 of The CTS New Sunday Missal for 2013. It was a very generous and lovely surprise, not only for me but also for over 50 Catholic inmates who attend every Sunday the Catholic Mass in our beautiful Chapel here at HMP Belmarsh.

By donating the Missals, you are helping the Catholics who use them not just at Mass in the Chapel but also in their cells, getting familiar with Sunday liturgical readings and prayers and use them for their spiritual development and comfort.
The inmates have asked me to convey their gratitude and thanks and will remember you and the CTS staff in their humble prayers.

Please keep in touch.
God bless
Fr Edward Okon O.Carm
The RC Chaplain at HMP Belmarsh

It is thanks to all the help we receive, spiritual and financial, from our Members, supporters and customers that we are able to aid the evangelisation in this and many other ways.
