Death Penalty

“We cannot overcome crime by simply executing criminals, nor can we restore the lives of the innocent by ending the lives of those convicted of their murders.  The death penalty offers the tragic illusion that we can defend life by taking life.” U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1999

Through prayer and support, we reach out
in compassion to both victims and offenders.

ACTION:  link to sign petition for Moratorium on Death Penalty www.moratoriumcampaign.org

For a wide range of resources go to the Catholic Campaign to End the Use of the Death Penalty www.ccedp.org
