Providing compassionate care at the end of life
To address the sensitive issue of compassionate care at the end of life, the Bishops of Ireland have published the pastoral letter: Freedom to Live Fully, Until Death Comes. You are invited to read this letter and view the accompanying video Through the Valley:-
In this context, bishops strongly oppose the Oireachtas Committee’s proposal to Government to legislate for assisted suicide, and call on support for healthcare workers who uphold the sanctity of life.
