Cities for Life - Cities Against the Death Penalty 

On November 30, 2016, various locations throughout our Florida dioceses will again participate in the annual event International Day of Cities for Life - Cities Against the Death Penalty, which has been spearheaded by the lay Catholic community of Sant'Egidio since 2002. Each year, about 2,000 cities all over the globe gather to renounce the death penalty and encourage a more civil form of justice. Specific efforts vary by location, but most cities take part by lighting up major historical, religious or civic monuments. In turn, those illuminated monuments become symbols that represent the commitment to creating a world without the death penalty.
