More than 5,000 prisoners at the Cebu City Jail male residence went to a Mass administered by Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma yesterday evening.
Surrender to God (SuGod) author, Fe Barino, facilitated with the archdiocese for the prelate to manage a Mass at the detainment office.
Correctional facility Superintendent Renante Rubio offered thanks for the help reached out by the medication recovery association.
"Nakumpleto na ang amo'ng misa'ng gabi kay ang mga piniriso wala may higayun maka gawas para mu simba, sama kami mga work force," said Rubio in an end proclamation. He said the detainment office is presently under red alarm.

Amid his last gift, Palma begged the prisoners to remain firm in changing their lives amid their detainment.
"Aduna pay posibilidad nga duna pay pag laum, nga duna pay higayon niining change, niining reorganization. Nya kining pag pack o mahitabo sa among kinabuhi," said Palma.
(There is still expectation that we can be changed amid this reorganization. What's more, this change will occur in our lives.)
He said their families would be given graces which the prisoners can't give.
Kirby Tano, 22, was managing diverse indecencies when he was captured. He has been in the slammer for over a year.
This will be his second Christmas in the correctional facility, far from his family.
"Lipay lang, tawa lang. Welcome lang ta's pamilya nato," said Tano.
His mom and three kin only here and there visit him in prison.
He said he profoundly laments the activities he has done, and pledged to be a changed man when he is free and rejoined with his family.
Tano is one of the beneficiaries of the restoration program offered by SuGod.
Barino said this is one of the manners in which the gathering can add to the mending of the destructive war on medications.
The medication recuperation and recharging program offered by SuGod for the Cebu City Jail detainees began two months back and will keep running until October 2019.
