End of Life Care

Whole Person Care Initiative

The Whole Person Care Initiative seeks to ensure that parishioners and patients are accompanied, loved and supported in their serious illnesses and end-of-life journeys. To that end the Initiative will provide each Health Ministry, Diocese and Parish with tools, resources, guidance, training and other support to implement Whole Person Care.

Embracing Our Dying

If those who are dying are embraced by their family and their community they will not seek death, but will live their last days well, and then accept death when it comes. The Embracing Our Dying webpages provide information about Catholic teachings on the end of life and also related statements and documents, including the Catholic Advance Health Care Directive Form.
