Euthanasia & the End of Life
On November 1, 2014, 29-year-old Brittany Maynard committed euthanasia in Oregon, after she had been informed by her physicians that she had an aggressive form of brain cancer and likely had only six months to live. Her death captured enormous media attention and there seemed to be much public sympathy for her and much support for her decision. On the Sundays of February we will discuss death and dying and the Catholic position on euthanasia and end of life decisions. These programs will be between the Masses on Sunday mornings and will begin at 9:30 a.m.
You can purchase flowers in memory of a loved one or in honor of someone. Simply call the parish office to request flowers for a particular weekend. There can be two arrangements per weekend. A parishioner who is a florist will provide and deliver the flowers on Saturday afternoon. Please make your request at least two weeks in advance so that we can announce in the bulletin the name of the donor as well as the name of the person being remembered. Requests for a particular date are honored on a first come-first served basis. However, it is the donation that guarantees a requested date and bulletin announcement. Flowers cost $50 per arrangement.
Did you know that we collect non-perishable food for the poor on the third weekend of every month? Place donations by the baskets near the three entrances. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society delivers the food to a local food pantry. Thank you for remembering that hunger is a year-round problem.
