THE STORY

JOIN OUR CONVERSATION

#SISTER15SHORTS

Roman Catholic nun Sister Gerard Fernandez became a death row counsellor after Catherine Tan was sentenced to hang. Catherine Tan was one of the two holy wives of the infamous Adrian Lim - a spirit medium whose outrageous story of sex, rituals and rites shocked the entire nation.

 

Sister Gerard visited and counseled Catherine every step of the way - until Catherine walked to the gallows in her final moments.

This film is inspired by Sister Gerard Fernandez, who was a pioneer in death row counselling. She co-founded the Roman Catholic Prison Ministry. When asked why she counsels doomed prisoners, her answer is always: "The condemned need hope. We may condemn them, but God condemns no one."

THE FILM IS DEDICATED TO: 

Seventy Times Seven (70x7) is an initiative within Prison Fellowship Singapore that promotes restorative justice. It is the non-religious arm of PFS. Our services and programmes serve the community of families and individuals in the Singapore prison system and seek to reconcile love and justice.

What you need to know?

Since 1998, the Singapore Prison Service (SPS) has moved beyond its custodial function, towards the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-offenders as responsible citizens.

 

The rehabilitation process includes teaching offenders core skills, offering work and vocational training, and religious services.  

 

Faith-based groups have historically played an important role in rehabilitation efforts, due to the official view that religion can be a powerful way to change an inmate’s thinking and behavior.
