Kumasi, Dec 31, GNA “ The Adum Wesley Cathedral is stepping up efforts to improve its prison outreach and missionary work.
The Very Rev Christopher Andam, the Superintendent Minister, said the Church would invest in skills acquisition programmes, embark on mentorship and prayer sessions to improve the physical and spiritual lives of the inmates.
He described involvement of the youth in criminal activities and their subsequent incarceration as worrying, noting that the church was much concerned about this development.
Very Rev Andam, donating food and other items to the Central Prisons in Kumasi, said the nation could build no meaningful future with a deviant youth.
They should, therefore, be sensitized to stay focused at all times and shun lifestyles that could ruin their God-given talents and careers.
The items, including 16 bags of rice, three bags of gari, toiletries and clothes, were donated by the church for the upkeep of the inmates.
Very Rev Andam appealed to the public not to stigmatize ex-convicts to enhance their integration into the society.
The Rev Superintendent Martin Padi, Ashanti Regional Chaplain of the Ghana Prisons Service, thanked the church for its commitment to the welfare of the inmates.
