Opposing February Execution

We will be publicly opposing Florida’s execution of Martin Grossman on Tuesday, February 16th.

We are ever mindful of the unimaginable pain and suffering which the family and friends of the Margaret Park continue to endure.

As Catholics and as citizens of this state, we voice our unequivocal opposition to the practice of State sponsored killing.

Florida’s Catholic Bishops have concurred that the death penalty has been discriminatory toward the poor, the indigent and racial minorities. In their position statement released in January 2002, they stated,
“Capital punishment contributes to the escalating atmosphere of violence in our society and undermines belief of the inherent worth and dignity of human life.”

This is a Pro-Life event.  Please join us.

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010
5:45 – 6:15pm (the execution is scheduled for 6pm)

St. Ignatius Loyola Cathedral (9500 N. Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens)
