Death Be Not Proud: The Art of Dying in the Catholic Tradition

July 23 @ 6:45 pm

Join Br. Linus for a four-part Parish Study on the end of life and dying well. Each talk will take place in the Lower Church at St. Vincent’s at 6:45 PM and can stand alone, so continuity in attendance is not necessary. The talks are intended for people of belief backgrounds and stages in life. Meetings will be as follows:

  • July 9: Faith, Hope, and A Happy Death
  • July 16: The Art of Dying
  • July 23: Last Rites
  • July 30: Eternal Life

In our third session, we will examine the place that the sacraments have at the end of a Christian’s earthly life. We will focus especially on the Anointing of the Sick, which with Confession and the Eucharist forms the heart of the Church’s spiritual care for the dying. We will also discuss best practices about when to request these sacraments and how to prepare well to receive them.
