When confronted with a life-limiting diagnosis, we can find ourselves in an unfamiliar and even frightening situation. These moments are usually marked by having to make numerous practical decisions surrounding care and support for loved ones and ourselves. More often than not, such decisions require moral discernment through the lens of our faith.

We believe in the dignity and sacredness of human life at all stages, from conception to natural death. At the same time, our faith does not demand that life is to be sustained at all costs. As Catholics, our faith in Jesus Christ has much to teach us about living and dying well.

HORIZONS OF HOPE is a resource created by the Canadian Catholic bishops as a toolkit for Catholic parishes about palliative care. The four-module workshop weeks to empower and educate parishioners and address important question about palliative care, dying, death, suffering and bereavement. The goal is for the workshop to be taught in every parish community across the diocese. (To book a workshop in your parish, please contact Jackie Saretsky at jsaretsky@rcdos.ca or (306) 659-5839.)

“I am very excited about this resource for our parishes,” said Jackie Saretsk, diocesan coordinator of Hospital Chaplaincy . “It is very well done, and it won’t overwhelm people, but will really encourage and inspire them.”
