Death Penalty Statement

The Community of the Holy Spirit is centered in San Diego, California. We live a contemporary mode of religious life according to the Catholic faith. All persons are created in the image of God and we profoundly believe in the sanctity of all human life. We are committed to acts of compassion, peace and justice.

Because the practice of the death penalty is incompatible with the Gospel message of mercy and justice, we publicly commit ourselves to witness and act to abolish the death penalty.
