Pax Christi-Phoenix 
along with
the Arizona Death Penalty Forum (AzDPF),
the Coalition of Arizonans to Abolish the Death Penalty (CAADP)
and the Arizona Ecumenical Council,
invite you to join them to
witness against the execution of Samuel Villegas Lopez
and to promote the abolishment of the death penalty

  • Date: Tuesday, June 26th
  • Speakers: 6:00 – 6:15 PM (led by AzDPF)
  • Prayer Vigil: 6:15 – 6:30 PM (led by Pax Christi)
  • Where: The front lawn of the Senate Building at the Arizona State Capitol on 17th Ave. between W. Adams and W. Jefferson Streets, Phoenix, AZ
            (There is parking available in the parking lot near Wesley Bolin Plaza.)

For the second time, Mr. Lopez is scheduled to be executed on Wednesday, June 27th. He will be the 4th person to be killed by Arizonans this year. We come together to pray for victims of capital crimes and their families, as well as for the one who will be executed and his family. 

We also come together to reflect on state-sanctioned killing. We will pray for healing and for the opening of hearts of our government leaders, those in charge of our prison system, all who participate in our judicial system, and all citizens of Arizona. It will be a time to reflect and renew our commitment to abolish the death penalty.

For more information about the Witness, please contact Margaret/Dan Wolford (Pax Christi-Phoenix) @, Billy Fidlin (AZ Ecumenical Council) @; Inge Casey (AzDPF) @ or Dan Peitzmeyer (CAADP) @
