St. Jerome's Event: Sr. Helen Prejean

  • St. Jerome's University 290 Westmount Road North Waterloo, ON, N2L 3G5 Canada (map)


The death penalty is one of the great moral issues that continues to face many countries, yet most people rarely think about it and very few of us take the time to delve deeply enough into this issue. Sr. Helen Prejean is a southern storyteller who will bring you on a journey about how she got involved with the Ministry Against the Death Penalty. This ministry believes in the dignity of all people, expresses mercy and justice by standing side by side with those who are outcasts in our society, promotes compassionate alternatives to the death penalty, and supports victims’ families.
