Prison chaplain Mel Monfries (centre) recently celebrated 15 years of service in prison ministry. Her dedicated and energetic approach to chaplaincy was recognised at a morning tea organised by the Department of Corrections. Other chaplains, prison guards and staff spoke about Mel’s positive impact in her interaction with prisoners. Sarah Moffatt thanked Mel for her contribution to the life and mission of the Church, especially those who are most vulnerable. She was presented with a glass plaque made by prisoners by Stephanie Flint, assistant general manager of the Department.
