Diocesan-wide initiative requires assistance

Posted: Nov 8, 2017

Synod delegates likely recall that the following motion was passed at Synod 2017:

Moved that the Diocese of Algoma encourage parishes and incumbents to become familiar with Bill C-14 and this new approach to end of life care and develop a plan of pastoral response to those affected by serious, incurable illness and their families within our communities.

Moved that the Diocese of Algoma look into providing opportunities and resources for training clergy and laity in end of life pastoral care.

A Task Force was formed to investigate ways to fulfill the requirements of this motion.  Their first communiqué to the Diocese may be found here.  Please take the time to read the information provided as the group is requesting assistance to further the work on this initiative within the Diocese.  They are hoping for responses by December 8th!

They ask that this letter is shared with parishioners and Synod delegates so that the information is circulated as widely as possible across the Diocese.
