EVERY LIFE MATTERS

The issues of suffering and of preparing for death touch every one of us. How do we respond as followers of Jesus Christ? In the Archdiocese of Edmonton we are undertaking a special initiative to help one another explore deeply our Catholic stance against assisted suicide and euthanasia. In this video, Archbishop Richard Smith extends a personal invitation to people of the Archdiocese to attend a series of conversations on this important subject.

Sun. Apr. 3 @  4:30 pm - 'What's it all about?'
Tues. Apr. 5  @   9:00 pm -  'What's wrong with assisted suicide & euthanasia?'
Sun. Apr. 10  @ 4:30 pm -  'It's my body, my choice.'
Tues. Apr. 12 @  9:00 pm -  'I don't want to suffer.'
Wed. Apr. 13 @  9:00 pm - 'What must we do?'

DECLARATION ON EUTHANASIA AND ASSISTED SUICIDE

This past October, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada launched a joint Declaration on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide.  At the time of its release, the Declaration had been signed by 56 faith leaders across Canada.  These signatories, including the CCCB, are now making a concerted effort to obtain signatures from a wide spectrum of Canadians who agree with the principles outlined in the Declaration.  You are invited to show your support for this initiative.  The Declaration and signatory option can be accessed at the following link:www.euthanasiadeclaration.ca

Assisted suicide – protect the vulnerable and those who care for them. 

By June 2016, the Government of Canada is expected to pass legislation to legalize assisted suicide.  The Coalition for HealthCARE and Conscience is making an urgent appeal for your help.  This group of like-minded partners, which includes 5,000 doctors across Canada, is committed to protecting conscience rights for health practitioners and facilities.  You are invited to visit the Coalition’s website, for more information and to show your support.  Through the website, you can write directly to your Member of Parliament to express your concerns.  Since there is a tight timeline for the development of this legislation, you are asked to take action no later than April 1, 2016.
