Envelopes for All Souls Day are available at the church entrance. You can also
submit your All Souls information online

Health Care Decision Making for End of Life
What happens if you get sick and have to go to the hospital unexpectedly or to a long-term care residence? How do you broach the topic with your loved ones? Do they and your doctor know what your wishes are?
It is important to prayerfully reflect and plan on how you wish your health care to be handled
there is a crisis and to make sure your wishes are known by your loved ones and doctors. The
Maryland Catholic Conference
has updated and simplified their health care decision making resources to help you.
This simple document
outlines the essentials of our Catholic faith and end of life, and it includes an advanced care directive that you can fill out and use in Maryland.
