Tales From Jails – Prison Ministry In Belgium

Ann turner writes:

"This month The Anglican Council for Belgium (ACB) met for one of its twice yearly meetings at the Episcopal Church at Waterloo. The two speakers were Grace West and Egbert van Groesen. They are the two stipendary Prison Chaplains for Belgium.

"Grace works in the French region's prisons and Egbert in the Flemish prisons. They are remunerated by the Belgian Ministry for the work they do and their expenses are paid with the support of ACB and Holy Trinity Church in Brussels.

"A morning was really too short to hear about all they undertake in their ministry but the twenty odd people who came to listen went away most impressed with the Christian ministry they undertake for those who are in prison in Belgium.
