Being Prepared Ensures Your Final Wishes Are Followed

Conversations about illness, death and dying are never easy.

Whether death comes suddenly or after prolonged illness, most of us are not comfortable discussing our medical wishes or end-of-life plans with our loved ones. However, being prepared ensures that your final wishes are followed.

It’s important for you and your loved ones to understand the Church’s teachings on end-of-life decisions.
