The Social Justice Statement by the Australian Bishops titled “Building Bridges not Walls –  Prisons and the Justice System” is now available and can be downloaded through the link BUILDING BRIDGES NOT WALLS  .  The statement was launched on Wednesday September 14, and asks Catholics to think about conditions in our prisons, who is sentenced to prison and why.

Asking questions

  • Probably most people have mixed feelings about prisoners. Do you?
  • In practice are prisons the best way of handling crime?
