Panama Penitentiary is a ‘Workshop of Freedom’ for Inmates Constructing the ! World Youth Day Confessionals
Panama, November 9, 2018. Inmates at the La Joya and La Nueva Joya Penitentiaries in Panama are constructing 250 confessionals to be used for the Sacrament of Reconciliation during World Youth Day.
A response to Pope Francis’s particular outreach to the imprisoned, the work aims to provide not only practical skill development, but also a ministry of healing in preparation for the Holy Father’s visit to the country in January.
