Sr. Helen Prejean: Talking About Life, Death and Social Justice

Time: 7 pm to 8:30 pm

Contact: Kurt Bindewald · · 504-865-2083

Location: Holy Name of Jesus Church

The death penalty is one of the great moral issues facing our country, yet most people rarely think about it and very few of us take the time to delve deeply enough into this issue to be able to make an informed decision about it.  Sr. Helen Prejean, founder of Ministry Against the Death Penalty and author of Dead Man Walking, passionately shares her own experience and witness about the death penalty and our shared responsibility as faithful citizens to be prophets of justice.

This lecture is part of the 40th Anniversary Celebration of LUCAP (Loyola University Community Action Program) and sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry, Office of the University Chaplain and Alumni Relations.

Sr. Helen Prejean Lecture:"Dead Man Walking: The Journey Continues"

Time: 7 pm to 9:30 pm

Contact: Kurt Bindewald ·

Location: Holy Name of Jesus Church

Sister Helen Prejean, member of the Congregation of St. Joseph and Louisiana
native, will speak at Loyola University New Orleans on Monday, November 16, at
7pm in Holy Name of Jesus Church.  Her talk is titled \"Dead Man Walking: The
Journey Continues.\"  Sr. Helen will share about her continued work with death
row inmates, their victims and the problems of our justice system- particularly
the death penalty.  Sr. Helen\'s work was documented in her book \"Dead Man
Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty\" which was made into a
major motion picture and an opera.  

This event is being held to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the Loyola
Community Action Program (LUCAP)and co-sponsored by the Loyola Office of Mission and
Ministry, University Ministry and the University Chaplain.

As the Catholic Church enters its Year of Mercy beginning in Advent, the United
States enters an election year in 2016 and Pope Francis continues to call for 
global abolition of the death penalty as in his historic September address to
Congress, Sr. Helen challenges us to talk about life, death and social justice.
