Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada   The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has played an important role in helping the church be present and active, nationally and internationally.  The CCCB supports the Bishops in their pastoral ministry, in the fields of catechesis, ecumenism, interfaith relations, social justice, liturgy, doctrine, relations with Indigenous peoples, international aid and family life.  The second collection for the needs of the church will be held next week (Sep 30).  Through your contribution to the collection, you too can collaborate with Bishops in their ministry to teach, sanctify and govern.

Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide: Symptoms of a Culture of Death

The Danger is Real.  We must defend the most vulnerable, remembering that we sooner or later will all become vulnerable.  We must protect our right to life rather that create a so-called right to die.  The solution is not euthanasia or assisted suicide.  The solution is palliative care until death.  We must all have access to palliative care when the time comes.  It is a question of public safety, dignity, true compassion and solidarity.
