An Evening with Sister Helen Prejean and the 20th Anniversary of the film “Dead Man Walking”
Sister Helen Prejean has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty. Sister Helen is a member of the Congregation of St. Joseph and began working at Hope House from 1981 – 1984. During this time, she was asked to correspond with a death row inmate Patrick Sonnier at Angola. She agreed and became his spiritual adviser. After witnessing his execution, she wrote a book about the experience. The result was Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States.
