The use of the death penalty has been a hotly debated topic for many years. Many in the Marianist Family view it as an unjust and inhumane punishment that is inconsistent with the Gospel. This community meeting kit examines how restorative justice seeks to improve and repair relationships between people and communities. This Community Meeting Kit was created in collaboration with the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative (MSJC).

This meeting kit is adapted from the resource and discussion guide provided by the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative (MSJC) for use by Marianist communities (lay or religious) and parish groups who seek a deeper understanding of this issue in light of Catholic Social Teaching and the Marianist charism, and would like to prayerfully respond to this issue.
