Sister Eileen Reilly, SSND

Sister Eileen, the Religious Engagement Associate for the Catholic Mobilizing Network, is working with Religious Congregations to broaden and deepen their commitment to ending the death penalty and to enhance the voices of murder victim family members.

Eileen holds an MA in Peace and Justice Education and a Masters of Divinity from Weston Jesuit School of Theology.  She has taught at the elementary and secondary levels, and coordinated peace and justice activities in several parishes as well as within her own religious congregation.  Prior to coming to CMN, Eileen served as her congregation’s NGO Representative to the United Nations.  

After being involved in death penalty abolition efforts in three different states where she was ministering, she became the spiritual advisor to an individual on death row who was subsequently executed.
