Sister Helen Prejean, the author of Dead Man Walking, will speak at the Churches United Delegate Assembly on Thursday, March 26, at Asbury United Methodist Church, 18th and Mississippi Streets in Bettendorf.
A press release states: "Although part of the annual meeting is for its members, the public is welcome to come and hear Sister Helen that evening." Registration starts at 6:30 p.m., and the event begins at 7 p.m.
