Every Life Matters: An invitation from Archbishop Smith

March 29, 2016
Every Life Matters: an invitation from Archbishop Smith from Archdiocese of Edmonton on Vimeo.
The issues of suffering and of preparing for death touch every one of us. How do we respond as followers of Jesus Christ? The Archdiocese of Edmonton is undertaking a special initiative to help us explore deeply our Catholic stance against assisted suicide and euthanasia.
In the 2016 Easter season, Archbishop Smith will be hosting a series of presentations on the subject of physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. Five sessions will be held at five different parishes across the Archdiocese, each dealing with a different aspect of this important topic. They will include prayer, personal witness, teaching from the Archbishop, and time for questions and answers.
Archbishop Smith extends a personal invitation to people of the Archdiocese and in the surrounding area, to attend this series of conversations on this important subject. Come, learn about this tragic situation and its consequences, about what our faith teaches, and about what we can do in response. You are particularly invited to attend the session closest to your own parish.
For those of you who are not able to attend, all sessions will be web-streamed live, and you can participate on the Edmonton archdiocesan website or right here at saltandlighttv.org.
If you have questions about end-of-life issues that you want addressed at these sessions, send them to the Edmonton Archdiocese via Twitter at @CAEDM or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/archedmonton, using the hashtag #ELM.
