Catholic prisoners' experience of chaplaincy in prison

As part of our work on the Good Prison, Lemos&Crane are working with the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales to explore the experiences that Catholic prisoners have of the Catholic ministry in prison, and how chaplains might build on their current activities to best promote reflective experiences and rehabilitative outcomes for prisoners. This work is being supported by the Jerusalem Trust, one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts.

"Belief and Belonging addresses a difficult subject with great understanding. This report outlines the work that the Catholic church does with those who are often outside the margins of society. The work of prison chaplains reminds us of the Church's mission of accompaniment and invites us to share God's genuine mercy. Just as Jesus reached out to sinners, we too, following his example must also reach out and show forgiveness. As well as addressing the spiritual needs of prisoners, Belief and Belonging recognises the valuable practical role that prison chaplains perform." H.E. Cardinal Vincent Nichols
