Catholic Groups Mobilize To End The Death Penalty In Georgia

Our network of deacons, lay Catholics, and diocesan staff educate, pray, and advocate for an abolition of capitol punishment in Georgia. We are a network of deacons, lay people, and diocesan staff who seek to uphold the life and dignity of all people, including those on death row. In response to Church teaching that capital punishment is incompatible with the gospel and can no longer be justified in modern society, we work to educate Catholic parishes, schools, and faith groups and invite them to join our work to end the use of the death penalty in Georgia. Working closely with the Archdiocese of Atlanta and the Georgia Catholic Conference, we also serve as a Catholic presence at prayer vigils and legislative actions aimed at awareness, moratorium, and abolition of the death penalty and the promotion of a culture of life.
