  • Image preview 7:00pm - 8:30pm: An Evening with Sister Helen Prejean - Registration is Closed for the Event
    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.
