Prison Ministry Barbecue at Mtahleb Correctional Facility
Once again this year, Maltese Association with the help and collaboration of the Association’s Prison Ministry supporters organised a barbecue for the YOURS prison inmates at the Mtaheb Correctional Facility. The internees are young offenders who are serving time imprisoned for a number of offences. These inmates have fortnightly visits by the Prison Ministry members on a regulars basis .
The inmates were treated to a lavish meal which consisted of pork cuts, chicken and bragoli, so very kindly prepared by Mr Joe Mangion, a Maltese Association volunteer gifted with excellent culinary skills. Sir Michael, the faithful prison warden and kitchen cook served a splendid spread of various appetizing side dishes of couscous, salads and tasty sauces.
The YOURS inmates, prison staff and prison ministry members enjoyed a few hours together in a convivial and jovial atmosphere.
The Prison authorities from year to year look so much forward and are so enthusiastic to hold this activity for their boys which is uplifting and such a positive boost for them. Needless to say, the event is also a rewarding experience for the prison ministry members who have built a strong and profound relationship with these special young men who have a great desire to reform their lives after realizing their grave mistakes.
