Pact for Parishes & Groups Prisoners' Sunday About Prisoners' Sunday Resources to Mark Prisoners' Sunday in Church Message for Your Parish Newsletter Prisoners' Sunday - 8th October. We will remember prisoners and their families at Mass this weekend. There will be a speaker to share with us what life is like for prisoners and their families in our communities and about the work of Pact, the national Catholic prison charity. There will be a second collection to support Pact's important work in the year ahead. Bidding Prayers God of mercy, you offer freedom to all people. We pray for those in prison and for their children and families. Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist. May your love overcome struggle and heartache and bring new life. Lord God, we commend to you all who work or volunteer, in courts, prisons and communities. May they know your presence with them as they work and may their efforts inspire us to share your love ever more widely.
