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.

Prior to the global pandemic restricting large, public gatherings, The Catholic Foundation hosted The Conversation: A Catholic Perspective on End-of-Life Issues at St. Rita Catholic Community in Dallas.

Five speakers delivered a series of conversations before a sold-out crowd about how advance planning on your part keeps your family from having to make these difficult decisions.
