Last year, Caritas Leeds launched Justice & Mercy, an ambitious plan of action to raise awareness and promote positive change in the criminal justice system. The report was the result of a 2-year journey listening to the testimonies of prisoners, victims of crime, their families, their communities, those working and volunteering in the criminal justice system.

Prisons Week 2021 (10-16 Oct) is an important reminder for Catholics of our duty to work for justice and mercy in the criminal justice system. To mark this occasion, Caritas Leeds is holding a special event to help individuals and parishes respond to the needs of all people affected by the criminal justice system through prayer and action in the coming year.

The event will include:

  • Justice & Mercy themed participative liturgy
  • The Rt Revd Richard Moth, Liaison Bishop for Prisons (CBCEW)
  • Alison Lowe, West Yorkshire Deputy Mayor for Policing & Crime
  • Launch of Faith Works training programme with West Yorkshire Police
  • Stalls and networking opportunities with local charities and services for people and communities affected by the criminal justice system
