The bishop of the Catholic Church Diocese of Tonga and Niue – His Eminence Cardinal Mafi this morning marked the beginning of the Holy Family Charity Centre’s counselling workshop at Hu’atolitoli Prison. The workshop aims to provide spiritual counselling to prisoners to help them improve their lives.

In his remarks, H.E. Cardinal Mafi says, the workshop is very important in helping prisoners understand they can change for the better and return to society to be good citizens of the country.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner of Prison – Laini Manuofetoa says the program is very helpful in the rehabilitation of the prisoners.

This morning’s program was aimed at the prisoners participating but because of the restrictions from the coronavirus, the workshop was only presented to the Prison officers who in turn pass it on to the prisoners. This initiative was funded by Caritas Tonga.
