Mark your calendars

You are invited to hear Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ speaking on Dead Man Walking: The Journey Continues Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. at La Salle Institute, 174 Williams Road, Troy (next to Hudson Valley Community College).

Sister Helen is widely known as an advocate for the abolition of the death penalty. She wrote Dead Man Walking about her experiences with prisoners on death row. The book was made into a feature-length film starring Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn, and also into an opera of the same title.

A freewill offering will go towards Sr. Helen’s ministry.
