We Can and Must do Much Better
Please find attached a document entitled “We Can and Must do Much Better - Religious Leaders in Canada denounce Bill C-7, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (medical assistance in dying)”. This ecumenical and interfaith document has been endorsed by over 50 religious leaders and organizations from across Canada. As Canadians we are obliged to express our strong concern and opposition to Bill C-7 which, among other things, expands access to euthanasia and assisted suicide to those who are not dying. The Canadian Religious Leaders urge a more complete consultation with all Canadians on this grave matter as we seek to be a society of care and compassion.
Impact of COVID-19 Resources
Please find below a link to the site of Grandin Media pertaining to an initiative of the Bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The site contains an explanation of the project, reflection texts, panel descriptions, and videos (as they become available). The resources provided may be shared with your parishioners and communities.
