BARE HLLL CORRECTIONAL FACILITY TO OBSERVE FIRST ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR MEN AND BOYS ON SUNDAY, 16 NOVEMBER 2014


MALONE, NEW YORK (USA) -- 5 October 2014 -- The historic and First Annual International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys will be observed in a correctional facility. Observance of the First Annual International Day of Prayer on Sunday, 16 November 2014 will be observed at Bare Hill Correctional Facility located in Malone, New York under the leadership of the International Men's Day Empowerment Coordinator Mr. Carry Greaves. Mr. Greaves is also orchestrating an observance of 2014 International Men's Day on Wednesday, 19 November 2014 at Bare Correctional Facility. Bare Correctional Facility will join institutions, organizations, and individuals in 80 nations in observing 2014 International Men's Day on Wednesday, 19 November 2014 under the theme "Working Together for Men and Boys". 

 Calendar Year 2014 marks the correctional institution's second observance of International Men's Day as part of the International Men's Day "Healing and Repatriation" Initiative launched in 2012. Bare Hill Correctional Facility's observance of 2014 International Men's Day is being coordinated by an Incarcerated Father who has served since 2012 as the Empowerment Coordinator for International Men's Day at the invitation of the Founder of International Men's Day, Jerome Teeluckingsingh, Ph.D. The International Men's Day "Healing and Repatriation" Initiative was inaugurated in 2012 by the United States Coordinator for International Men's Day and Chair of the 2012-2022 International Men's Day Ten Year Plan Committee, Diane A. Sears. In 2012, for the first time, International Men’s Day was observed in a correctional facility – the Clinton Correctional Facility located in Dannemora, New York. On Monday, 19 November 2012, an American correctional facility joined individuals, institutions, and organizations around the world in observing 2012 International Men’s Day under the theme, “Helping Men and Boys Live Longer, Happier, Healthier Lives”. 

The success of the inaugural observance of 2012 International Men’s Day at the Clinton Correctional Facility spawned the creation of the International Men’s Day “Healing and Repatriation Initiative” in January 2013. The International Men’s DaY “Healing and Repatriation Initiative” promotes the observance of International Men’s Day in all correctional facilities throughout the United States. A number of International Men’s Day Coordinators in other nations are considering implementing thIs initiative in their respective countries. Observance of International Men’s Day at correctional facilities can take the form of workshops and discussion groups about issues that are in alignment with the theme of International Men’s Day. So what is the International Men’s Day “Healing and Repatriation” Initiative all about? It is about providing approximately 2,500,000 souls in the United States who are incarcerated in the United States with an opportunity to participate in a worldwide event which encourages them to engage in critical thinking about issues that affect them, their families and loved ones, and the communities in which they have lived and will one day return to. It is about helping them to see themselves as ‘part of a whole’. It is one of the many ‘first steps’ that must be taken to heal and “reconnect” spiritually, psychologically, and emotionally approximately 700,000 souls who are released from American prisons every year and place them on the path to successful reintegration into society.
