Speaker Series:  Justice, the Death Penalty, and Our Criminal Justice System @ St. Mary Church | Lancaster | Ohio | United States

Come learn more about the death penalty and restorative justice from a Catholic perspective. Hear from speakers who have firsthand experience with the criminal justice system. Sponsored by the diocesan Office for Social Concerns, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and Ohioans to Stop Executions. For more information, contact (614) 241-2540.

Including Wendy Tarr, community organizer of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s Restored Citizens and Communities for Change project. Ohio returns thousands of people from incarceration into our communities each year. Learn about what is happening in Ohio and ways Catholics can support current efforts to move from a system focused on punishment to one of restoration and second chances and how the formerly incarcerated can better return to their families with the tools necessary to rebuild and restructure their lives.
