Event Description

OMI Lacombe Canada’s Office of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC) in partnership with Saint Paul University is pleased to invite you to attend a Symposium on Friday, October 16, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The Symposium will take place at Saint Paul University, 223 Main St. Ottawa, Ontario, in the Amphitheatre. The theme of the symposium is: “End-of-Life Care: Challenges in Our Post-Christian World”. We hope to offer an educational opportunity regarding the implications of the Supreme Court decision to strike down the Canadian law relating to assisted suicide. As a caring church and wider society, what are our options? Should we be lobbying for better and more available palliative and spiritual care? What should that care look like and how will it be funded? Our speakers and panelists are all experts in different aspects of this important issue which affects all of us now and will affect us in the future.

We shall be covering these topics:

The Supreme Court decision on assisted death
Reflections of a very public Catholic physician and bioethicist
Assisting the elderly and palliative care: some guidelines
Humanization of health care: challenges and perspectives

We believe this symposium to be extremely timely and relevant, particularly as we shall soon be voting in a general election. We look forward to dialogue with you on these vital issues.

It would be an honor if you could join us for this important event.

Invitations will be extended to the public, doctors, nurses, nursing schools, pastoral agents, parishes, institutions and NGOs, others.

Note: There is no cost to attend this event
