Prison Ministry

HMYOI Hindley (Hindley Prison) currently houses approximately 270 young people aged 15 to 18 years, many of whom have little or no content with their families and receive no visits or letters.

The chaplaincy team wish to encourage members of the local parishes to become involved in their work bypaying occasional visits to the prisoners,

  • assisting with or providing music at the weekly Mass celebrated by the Catholic Chaplain (on Saturdays between 8.30am and 10.30am),
  • being a letter-writing pen friend,
  • or establishing prison discussion groups and fellowship prayer groups


You can find out more about what's involved by contacting Deacon Ken Holding at Sacred Heart Church or Neil Mulhearn at Holy Family Church. .
