The conference will be organized by the Evangelical Lutheran church of Finland/National church council and the Criminal sanctions agency/Central administration unit – and hosted by the National board for prison ministry and prison chaplaincy.
The conference program includes some of the fundamental themes for prison ministry and prison chaplaincy: Right to religion in prisons and the international/national guide lines for that; Prisoners’ religious needs and needs for pastoral care; Practice of religion in prisons and prison chaplaincy in Nordic countries, The role and status of prison chaplain in prison; The ethical challenges for prison chaplaincy and prison ministry; The multicultural and multireligious environment’s effect on prison ministry and prison chaplaincy.
Methods for working include presentations as well as working together in small groups and as a large group. Every participant will be invited to contribute to the reflection on the conference themes. The cozy countryside conference hotel provides space to relax with colleagues from neighboring countries informally during the conference evenings.
