Saturday at 6pm, Feb. 17th, come enjoy a soup supper with discussion at Queen of Peace Parish in Salem. Sponsored by Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (OADP), speakers will focus on the leadership of Pope Francis, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Archbishop Alexander Sample.

    The keynote speaker will be Becky O’Neil McBrayer, a member of the OADP board of director and murder victim family member. The program will be hosted by former Oregon Supreme Court chief justice Paul DeMuniz and comments on Catholic teachings by Fr. Tim Mockaitis.

    Dinner will begin following the Queen of Peace 5PM Saturday mass, catered by prize-winning chef Elias Torres. Tickets are only $10 each. One or more eight-person table sponsor-ships are encouraged by each Catholic parish in Marion County.

    In order to repeal the Oregon death penalty a vote of the people will be necessary. An important part in removal of death penalties in six states since 2005 has been the vigorous efforts of Catholics in each of those states. It is now time to mobilize the faithful to promote the conversation among all voters to do the right thing and repeal the death penalty in Oregon.

Dinner, catered by prize-winning chef Elias Torres, will begin following the Queen of Peace 5PM Saturday mass. Tickets are only $10 each. To reserve tickets call (503)990-7060 or buy online at www.oadp.org.
