Atlantic Bishops Pastoral Letter on Medical Assisted Dying

 Atlantic Bishops Pastoral Letter on Medical Assisted Dying

Dear Friends,

On this first Sunday of Advent, I am pleased to present the pastoral reflection of the Atlantic Bishops, on the matter of medically assisted dying.

In this letter, the bishops offer their thoughts and advise on how to appropriately respond to individuals and their families who may be considering medically assisted dying and seeking pastoral care.

I invite all the faithful to receive this reflection for their prayerful consideration. I invite all clergy and laity involved in the care of the sick and dying, to reflect the pastoral attitudes contained in this letter.

May the birth of Christ for which we are preparing, help us to appreciate the full value of life and respectfully care for it.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
†Anthony Mancini
Archbishop of Halifax-Yarmouth
