We will be standing vigil in meaningful faith-filled presence to protest the non-redemptive nature and violence of the death penalty during the following executions.
We ask that everyone join together in front of the Walls Unit (at the corner of Ave. I and 12th St.) by 5:30 p.m. the evening of each scheduled execution. Any stay of execution will be published on the church’s Facebook page by 5:00 p.m. the day of the scheduled execution. The vigil is usually over by 7:00 p.m. We often hold a candle in visual protest during our vigil as a signal that there is always hope for personal redemption. If you would like to do so, please bring one. Extra candles from church will be provided for those who forget. If any of us have “Standing on the Side of Love” t-shirts, please wear them as a demonstration of faithful solidarity.
