CSD organises Christmas activities

The Correctional Services Department arranged for people in custody to attend Christmas activities during the festive period.

 

Catholic Bishop of Hong Kong Stephen Chow presided at Christmas Mass today at Stanley Prison to share his faith and Christmas blessings with participating inmates. He also visited the prison hospital to convey his sympathy and support to the patients.

 

Earlier on December 21, Archbishop of Hong Kong Andrew Chan presided at a Christmas service in Pak Sha Wan Correctional Institution to preach and share religious messages with inmates and show his love and care to them.

 

Through the correctional services chaplain, voluntary chaplains and visitors from religious organisations, a wide range of spiritual and social services are offered to those in custody who wish to participate regardless of their religious affiliation, the department said.

 

The services include visits, teaching, counselling, religious worship and recreational activities, it added.
