The federal government is attempting to restart the practice of executions for the first time in 17 years. Three executions are scheduled to take place over a five-day span beginning July 13 with a fourth to follow at the end of August.

Viatorians are joining with members of the Catholic Mobilizing Network in looking for ways to educate, advocate and pray for a halt to the restart in federal executions.

Join with them for one of our three Virtual Prayer Vigils next week, or take a couple minutes to watch the video message below.
