Joining us will be an ethicist and physician from Bon Secours Richmond Health System. The speakers will discuss issues that often arise with advanced care planning such as: What is the difference between ordinary versus extraordinary care? What should I consider when creating an Advance Medical Directive or attaining a health care proxy? How do I maintain the integrity of my Catholic faith when making these decisions?
World Youth Day is an unbelievable week-long spiritual journey where pilgrims from all over the world unite to share their faith. The week includes prayer, song, concerts, drama, sharing, liturgy, catechesis, and an unforgettable vigil and closing Mass with the Holy Father, Pope Francis. In 1984, Pope John Paul II invited young people from all over the world to participate in a pilgrimage at the very first World Youth Day. Since then they have been held in Argentina, Spain, Poland, US, Philippines, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, Australia, Madrid, Brazil, and Poland.

This event is planned especially for the catechetical leaders in our diocesan parishes as an opportunity for pastoral and spiritual formation. However, we also encourage the participation of any parish leader/staff who has worked for the church and has grappled with the challenges of parish ministry leadership, especially during the “hard times” of the church. The day ends in hope as we recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit still dwelling in the Church. Click here to register.
