St. Joseph Sister Helen Prejean, foremost foe of the death penalty in the U.S., has postponed appearances slated for this month in Oregon. She is recovering from unexpected back surgery and will not be on the road again until the start of the year.

Her Oregon visit is planned for the spring. Sister Helen, who wrote the book “Dead Man Walking,” is still speaking out on Facebook and Twitter as she recuperates.
