Anglican Bishop of Wellington to live in a prisoner prayer cell for a week

THE Anglican Bishop of Wellington is to live a week in a small cabin-like “cell”, praying for New Zealand’s 8000-plus prisoners and their victims.

Bishop Justin Duckworth’s prayer vigil in the cell on the front steps of Wellington Cathedral of St Paul is part of Wellington diocese’s week-long focus on penal reform.

He will go into the cell after preaching at this Sunday’s 10am service in the cathedral and won’t leave it until next Sunday’s service.
