“Justice is a constitutive part of the Gospel. It’s not extra. It’s not what you’re going to do AFTER charity. It’s constitutive.” During this retreat, Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, a Southern storyteller, brings you on a journey and shares her experiences involved with her death penalty ministry while working with the poor. In 1982, she became a pen pal of Elmo Patrick Sonnier, a death row inmate, and later his spiritual advisor. Sr. Helen, a native of Louisiana, is an internationally known death penalty opponent, the author of the New York Times best-seller, Dead Man Walking, and inspiration for the movie of the same name. She is a religious educator, champion of the poor—and part-time comedian! She also authored Death of Innocents: Wrongful Executions and founded the Moratorium Campaign, a group seeking to halt the death penalty.
