Sister Helen Prejean will present Campion College's 35th annual Nash Memorial Lecture. Entitled Dead Man Walking: The Journey Continues, the lecture will take place on Thursday, March 5, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. in the Education Auditorium, University of Regina. The event is open to the public and free of charge. Seating is limited. Complimentary parking is available in lots 13M and 14M. A book signing will follow the lecture.
Author of Dead Man Walking and The Death of Innocents, Sister Helen has been instrumental in sparking international dialogue on the death penalty and helping to shape the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to state executions. Her first book inspired a movie, an opera and a play for high schools and colleges. Since 1984, Sister Helen has divided her time between educating citizens about the death penalty and counseling individual death row prisoners. She travels around the world giving talks about her ministry and considers herself a southern storyteller.
