John Hargreaves has announced that Reverend Canon Simon Wooldridge will be the first pastoral care chaplain at the Alexander Maconochie Centre.
- “I am passionate about gaol chaplaincy so I am very excited about my new role,” Canon Wooldridge said.
“While I am a minister of a Christian denomination, my responsibilities are to all prisoners and custodial officers. I will not be making any distinctions between people of different race, creed or colour, or those of no religious affiliation at all,” Canon Wooldridge said.
Having worked at the Goulburn Correctional Centre he’ll certainly be well qualified.
