This October, the Catholic Church across the United States will observe Respect Life Month. This is a time when we are invited to renew our dedication to lifting up the inherent, God-given dignity of all human life. CMN has been hard at work preparing new and exciting materials to assist you in your advocacy to build a culture of life and end the use of the death penalty.
Intended for use before or on the day of an execution, CMN's Prayer Vigil for an Execution calls all to reflect on the themes of forgiveness and mercy in the face of the death penalty. Inviting us to lift up the dignity of all life and pray for those impacted by violence, this vigil serves to deepen our commitment to the work to end the death penalty.
