End of Life Medical Decision-Making - A Catholic Perspective

posted Mar 15, 2019, 6:05 AM by Diane Lapinski

Do you have an Advanced Medical Directive or a Health Care Proxy?  Do you understand the basics of medical ethics and serious medical illness decision making from a Catholic perspective? Is there someone you trust to help make medical decisions for you if you are not able?  What medical decision-making advice can you give family or friends that is in line with Church teaching? So often we have questions when our loved one is terminally ill. It is a very difficult time in the life of a family trying to understand what is permissible or not permissible, according to Catholic teaching.  Therefore, under the    guidance of Pete Roy, there will be a discussion entitled, END OF LIFE MEDICAL DECISION MAKING – A CATHOLIC PERSPECTIVE. Parishioners are invited to join me and Pete Roy, MD on Tuesday, March 19th for a presentation on Catholic medical decision making.  The session will begin at 7:00 PM in the Activities Center and will last between 45 minutes to one hour.
