NOW AND AT THE
HOUR OF OUR DEATH
for Catholics on
At some point every family must deal with issues involving end of life care for a loved one. As Catholics attempt to navigate the myriad medical, ethical, and religious questions that arise, all the while dealing with the grief of an impending death, it can become overwhelming.
In an effort to offer assistance, the New York State Catholic Conference has produced a website that tackles many of the common questions and concerns, offers clarity and compassion, and serves as an education Resource for Catholics nationwide.

The Diocese of Rochester and the Gates Catholic Community is committed to the safety and well-being of our youth and vulnerable adults. In ensuring this safety and well-being the diocese has created a mandatory workshop and background check for any adult having direct contact with our youth and vulnerable adults. The two hour workshop, “Creating a Safe Environment” and subsequent confidential background check is provided at no charge to any adult wishing to assist directly with our youth and vulnerable adults. Please contact the Parish Office for further information.
