Their message was "all life matter -- from conception to natural death."

The group hopes during the 2019 Legislative Session, an effort will be made to repeal the death penalty in Colorado.

"We have a penal system that can keep people in prison... gives them a chance to repent and shows them the dignity that they deserve as well, so we're behind that effort, and we hear that will be one of the legislative pieces that comes up soon," said Deacon Jeoff Bennett with Catholic Charities.
