Execution: November 8th 2017

With the time change the prayer vigil at the prison site took place both in the day and in the night.  Due to a last minute appeal to the US Supreme Court, it was not until 8:23 p.m. that the "stay" was lifted and Patrick Hannon was executed at 8:50 p.m.  Approximately 60 people participated in the vigil.  Our Saviour parishioners Grace Young is 94 and Cecilia Sloan is 87.  Both of these extraordinary women participated with a conviction and zeal that would put a "millennial" to shame; you had the sense that they were "channeling" Servant of God Dorothy Day.
