Sister Helen Prejean: Dead Man Walking ĖThe Journey Continues

FREE Lecture Sunday, October 4, 2:30 to 4 p.m.

OSSINING, NY (September 16, 2009) - Sister Helen Prejean, internationally known for her tireless work against the death penalty and for sparking national dialogue on the issue, helped to shape the Catholic Churchís newly vigorous opposition to all state executions.

Sister Prejeanís presentation will include stories of forgiveness and reconciliation from her experience working with death row inmates as well as the grieving families of murder victims.

Her book based on these experiences, Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and became an Oscar-winning film and internationally acclaimed opera.

Sister Prejeanís books will be available for sale and signing after the presentation. Maryknoll Museum of Living Mission will be open before and after the event. All are welcome. Admission is FREE.
