Virtual Prayer Vigils for Federal Executions

On July 14, 2020 the federal government restarted the practice of capital punishment following a 17-year hiatus from executions. Since then, the Department of Justice has taken the lives of an unprecedented thirteen people.

CMN’s Virtual Prayer Vigils for Federal Executions offer a space to pray and lament as a faith community in the face of these wrong-headed attacks on human dignity. Vigils often feature prayers, petitions, and Scripture reflections from Catholic bishops, Church leaders, and other allies from across the abolition movement. (View past vigil recordings here.)
