A Faithful Conversation with Sr. Helen Prejean on the Death Penalty

On October 12 at St. Edward’s University, Jones Auditorium at 7:00pm,  Sr. Helen Prejean will host a conversation with Dr. John Elford, Senior Pastor of University United Methodist Church and Rev. Nestor Menjivar, pastor of Principe de Paz (Prince of Peace) Baptist Church.

The conversation will include the challenges of moving Texas away from a culture of vengeance toward a culture of accountability that does not rely on the death penalty; how faith leaders and people of faith can take a more proactive role in educating their congregations about this issue;  and  the challenges of addressing the death penalty from the pulpit.  As Sr. Helen states, “I realize that I cannot stand by silently as my government executes its citizens. If I do not speak out and resist, I am an accomplice.”

Reserve your tickets today! Free to the public.  You will receive a confirmation email that will serve as your ticket!
