Thinking about the end of our lives is probably no one’s favorite topic.
However, in an age of changing health care, technological advancements, and political pressures, it is important to know what Saint Stephen’s Roman Catholic Church teaches about end of life issues. Whether you are concerned for a loved one who is growing older or are growing older yourself, it is important to understand these issues before you are faced with difficult decisions.
