Church Identifies Gbarnga Central Prison

MONROVIA-The St. Thomas Episcopal Church has reached out to inmates and thirty staffs at the Gbarnga Prison, Central in Central Liberia.

Their move is in fulfillment of the Bible principle that speaks of giving and sharing the needy.

The St. Thamas Episcopal Church located on Camp Johnson Road in Monrovia through its top leadership over the weekend identified with about the two hundred and ninety inmates and thirty staff.

The beneficiaries received food and non-food items including rice, plates, spoons, personal hygiene effects, and soaps among others valued at about $USD 2,000.00.

The gesture according to Rev. Canon Michael T. Sie is part of Lent Discipline as some Parishioners saw the imperative need to give back to humanity as such, they, therefore, set aside money and made in-kind contributions to ensure that they undertake such meaningful initiative.

“This was done as part of the Church’s season of lent”, he emphasized.

Lent as part of the Christian calendar is a period of 40 days during which Christians remember the events leading up to and including the death of Jesus Christ, whose life and teachings are the foundation of Christianity.

Led by Rector, Rev. Canon Michael Tuan Sie, Fr., the high power delegation from the St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Camp Johnson Road also included Allen V. Gaye, Members of the Vestry, and some Parishioners all formed a part of the visitation to the Gbarnga Central Prison to execute the distribution of the food and non-food items to the targeted body.

The beneficiaries appreciated the kind gesture of the Church especially to select them among other entities and institutions to receive such meaningful and timely donations.
