Help for released prisoners

VR. P. MURPHY O'CON2: NOR, Winchester Prison Chaplain, has started a Guild of St. Dismas in the Winchester and Southampton area to establish a house where Catholic exprisoners will be able to live between the time that they are released and the time that they find their feet in society again.

The Guild, which takes its name from the repentant thief who died on a cross at Calvary, has the approval of Archbishop King, Bishop of Portsmouth.

A suitable house will have to be found and will be supported by funds raised by the Guild. An appeal has already been made in the Winchester area, and Fr. Murphy-O'Connor described the response as "very encouraging".
