Pray a Novena to End the Death Penalty
October 10 is also World Day Against the Death Penalty. This evening of education is the culmination of a novena, nine days of prayer, to end the death penalty. Pope Francis has asked us to pray every day from Oct. 1 to Oct. 9 to end the death penalty.
Those who register for this event can also register to receive a daily email with prayers to end the death penalty. Though separate, we can all pray together.
