End of Life Matters

Presented by Rev. Keith LaBove

Is life sacred? Do we have to do everything? Who decides? Does a living will help? These and other questions will be discussed at a seminar to be offered by Father Keith LaBove, Pastor of St. Patrick Church and long-time hospital Chaplain. We will explore basic church teaching on end of life care, look at some specific issues that arise, and talk about advanced directives and the new LaPOST law in Louisiana. Sessions will be from 6:30-8:00 p.m., and this presentation will be repeated in all four regions.
