CMN is also excited to share a new resource with you, Stations of the Cross. Journey the way of the cross while meditating on the need to end the death penalty and promote restorative justice.
Looking for additional Lenten reflection tools? CMN has prepared a Good Friday Reflection pamphlet to end the use of the death penalty, as well as our Death Penalty and Restorative Justice workshops that can serve as additional reflection resources.
