Abolishing the Death Penalty in the United States
“Abolishing the Death Penalty in the United States” is the title of Sr. Helen Prejean’s talk at Fairfield University Egan Chapel on Wednesday evening, November 7 at 7 pm. Sr. Prejean is the author of Dead Man Walking, which also became a film, and The Death of Innocents. Earlier this year, Pope Francis revised the Catechism of the Catholic Church to decry the death penalty as inadmissible in our world today. Sr. Prejean’s talk is open to the public and is free of charge.
