Huancayo (Agenzia Fides) - The prison in the city of La Oroya in the central Andes of Peru, has opened a ceramic workshop equipped with the machinery required for all stages of the production process. The inauguration ceremony was presided by the Archbishop of Huancayo, Archbishop Pedro Barreto Jimeno SJ, and was also attended by the authorities of the region and the city of Huancayo. The workshop was titled with the name of the Archbishop at the request of the prisoners themselves, and in doing so, they also wanted to show gratitude for the support to the initiative from the first ecclesiastical authority in the region.
