Execution Vigil and Protest

Everyone is encouraged to attend the peaceful execution presence in Terre Haute at the prison.  Executions are scheduled for 7:00 am.  Starting at 5:00 am, the Federal Bureau of Prisons will bus protestors from Fairbanks Park in Terre Haute to the prison grounds for each execution. For those who prefer a warmer vigil, a concurrent indoor vigil will be held at the Sisters of Providence Church in nearby St Mary-of-the-Woods, IN. All are invited to attend either vigil presence.
