March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 22, 2023
The Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon is holding a Horizons of Hope workshop on four Tuesday evenings, beginning Feb. 28.
Horizons of Hope: A Toolkit for Catholic Parishes on Palliative Care will be presented from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, March 7, March 14 and March 21 at the Cathedral of the Holy Family, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon.
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.
