Sister Helen Prejean, "The Journey Toward Justice"
Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., best-selling author and human rights activist, will speak at Gonzaga University on Friday, Oct. 11 in a program titled, “The Journey Toward Justice.” Her lecture follows a 7 p.m. performance of a one-act play “Dead Man Walking,” a reading adapted from the Oscar-nominated film by the same name.
The program, co-sponsored by Gonzaga and the Fellowship of Peace Foundation, will be held in the Cataldo Hall Globe Room and the events are free and open to the public. Local students and community members will perform the one-act play. In her lecture, titled “Dead Man Walking: The Journey Continues,” Sister Prejean will discuss the death penalty. In addition, Most Rev. Blase J. Cupich, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Spokane, is scheduled to attend and participate in the program.
