Students Stand Witness to Life
On October 5, a group of Rosati-Kain students committed to pro-life, social justice, and diversity traveled to Bonne Terre, Missouri, to join in a prayer vigil and to stand witness to life. As Ernest Johnson was executed, Rosati-Kain students knelt in silent prayer at the site, while other students and faculty remained at school and prayed the rosary in support.
Pope Francis has deemed the death penalty as “an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.” Rosati-Kain students are committed to Catholic Social Teaching and understand that all life is sacred: the unborn, immigrants, people in poverty, victims of violence, and those on death row.
The St. Louis Review published an article on the execution and featured Rosati-Kain. Read the Article
