Every year on November 29/30 the Community of Sant’Egidio organizes “Cities for Life” – an international witness calling for the end of the use of the death penalty.  Cities around the world light up one of their city’s most notable landmarks (in Rome it is the Colosseum) as a visual witness calling for the respect for life in all circumstances.  Also there are various prayer services, conferences, forums and other forms of witness given on these days. 

Tonight at the Catholic Center (6:30 p.m.) we will host a “Prayer for Life on Death Row” as our way of joining in prayer with this international witness.
