Media Advisory: Roundtable Discussion with U.S. Bishops on the Death Penalty

October 9, 2019

 WASHINGTON - On Thursday, October 10, three Catholic bishops will gather for a conversation on the death penalty in the United States. In a discussion facilitated by Catholic News Service, Bishop Frank J. Dewane, of Venice and Chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, Archbishop Paul S. Coakley, of Oklahoma City and Chairman-Elect of the USCCB’s Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, and Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory, of Washington who has written and spoken extensively on life issues including the death penalty, will discuss the topic in light of the Administration’s announcement in July on the plan to resume federal executions in the United States. 

 October 10 is the seventeenth annual World Day Against the Death Penalty, a day of observance to highlight the issue of capital punishment and its impact on society. Each of the participating bishops have experienced the impact of the death penalty in their pastoral ministry. In this roundtable discussion, the bishops will draw from their experiences, and discuss the Catholic Church’s long-standing opposition to the death penalty, both at the state and federal levels, as well as the declining public support and use of the death penalty throughout the country. The bishops will renew their opposition to these scheduled executions with a call to action to engage faithful Catholics to join them in calling for an end to the death penalty.
