On Wednesday, March 26 Mother of Mercy and McAuley will welcome Sr. Helen Prejean to each of their schools for an all-school assembly. Additionally, the Mount will host Sr. Helen in the school’s theatre that evening at 7 p.m. for a speaking event, open to the public. Sr. Helen’s biography notes, “she has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty and helping to shape the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to state executions. She travels around the world talking about her ministry.” “It is an honor that we will be able to host Sr. Helen in addition to two performances,” said Sr. Nancy Bramlage. “This will be a wonderful opportunity for the students of all three schools and their families!”
Prior to Sr. Helen’s speaking engagement, attendees will be able to view selected Capital Punishment projects from Mercy’s Senior Seminar and Contemporary World Issues classes. Additionally, winners of the writing contest will perform their piece before Sr. Helen speaks. The event is free and VIP seating will be available to those who show a ticket from either the Tuesday or Thursday performance.
