Seeking To Abolish The Death Penalty In Texas

We pray and advocate to stop the use of Capitol Punishment in the state of Texas. We pray and advocate for an end to the death penalty because we believe that mercy truly does triumph over judgment. An initiative of the Texas Catholic Conference, we raise public awareness and provoke collaboration on the issues of criminal justice and the death penalty across the state. Our goal is to bring about policy changes that reflect the mercy of God for those who have sinned and sought forgiveness. In our state, which has the highest number of executions carried out each year, we seek legislative action to stop the use of the death penalty, request stays of execution, and offer prayers for each execution conducted in Texas.
