Mexico, February 9, 2011. For the past few months, Regnum Christi members have been working in three prisons in the northern, southern, and eastern parts of Mexico City with the goal of bringing the Gospel to an oft-forgotten sector of the population.

In addition to promoting Christian and human values, the missionaries have pushed for the construction of chapels in each of the prisons. The project involved the inmates themselves, who did the construction work, while Movement members from the adult and youth sections fundraised for the chapels.

Some of the prisoners expressed their gratitude and requested prayers and the sacraments. Future visits will thus include the participation of Legionary priests to hear confessions and celebrate Masses.

By offering spiritual care to the inmates, the missionaries are also offering a service to the diocese by caring for members of its parishes.
