    Women Who Light the Way event, featuring Sr. Helen Prejean

    March 25, 2020 from 5:30pm - 9:00pm

    Women Who Light the Way event, featuring Sr. Helen Prejean

    Ursuline College will honor author and social justice activist Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, with its Women Who Light the Way award in a public event on March 25, 2020 in the Bridges Room at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

    The event features a buffet, on-stage interview with Crain's Cleveland Business Publisher and Editor Elizabeth McIntyre, award presentation, remarks by Sister Helen, and a book signing.

    Sister Helen rose to international prominence with the publication of her 1994 book, “Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States,” which was made into an Academy Award winning movie starring Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn (1996). A tireless advocate for human dignity, she has recently published a book, “River of Fire: My Spiritual Journey,” which will be the focus of her talk.

    Ursuline's Women Who Light the Way award recognizes women who have risen to leadership roles in their field and inspired future generations of women. This biennial award was first presented for the first time to journalist and author Cokie Roberts in 2018.

    Individual tickets: $75.
