A women's prison meditation group contributes and feels part of Bonnevaux
Judi Taylor (from Sydney) has been meditating for many years with a group of inmates at Silverwater Women’s Correctional Centre. When she went for the first meditation of 2017, she received $100 from the chaplain, Margaret, with this note:
"When Fr Laurence asked each group worldwide to contribute to a scholarship fund for the new WCCM home in France, the group that meets here wanted to express our gratitude and be part of this initiative. Christian meditation has been a group prayer in Silverwater Women’s Correctional Centre each week on a Thursday for 20 years. Over the past two years, we have meditated on Sunday as well. Many women have come and gone but each tells their own story how this prayer has helped them to let go and let God particularly under difficult circumstances. Many doctors and nurses have commented on the difference these group meetings have made to a particular person. When an inmate leaves I give them a bookmark with how to meditate to help them continue on their own.
We are grateful for the support we have from Judi, Fr Laurence and Pauline Peters."
