All the visiting Parish Groups put up various programs like skits, dances, songs and carols that brought out the true meaning of Christmas. The inmates too presented very innovative items like juggling acts and skits which enthralled the visiting guests.
A variety of games were organized during the visits in which the inmates actively participated. All the inmates were also given gifts. These Christmas visits would not be possible without the hardwork of Sr. Mary Jane sfn (Prison Ministry Coordinator) and all the Animators of the visiting parishes. These Christmas visits brought a lot of happiness and hope to all the inmates.
