10:00 - 11:00 Panel 3: The Impact of Imprisonment on Families
(Hall 8B) - EN
Panel leader: Breda Coman
While visiting a prison in Philadelphia Pope Francis urged people in prison, their family and the correctional officers to believe in the possibility of rehabilitation because Christ saves us from the lie that says that nobody can change. This panel discusses the difficulties experienced by families with members currently serving time in prison and suggests ways in which families can receive sufficient pastoral support.
