End-of-Life Care

Would your loved ones know what to do if you were seriously injured or became seriously ill? Have you made your wishes clear?

The Diocese of Portland has developed Three Beliefsa guide for Maine Catholics that offers valuable assistance and information regarding end-of-life issues.

The packet includes information about an Advance Health Care Directive, also known as a living will, and about establishing a power of attorney for health care.

All the material contained has been reviewed and approved for consistency with Catholic teachings and state laws.

A printer-friendly version is available here.  A color version is available here.

Copies of Three Beliefs are also available by contacting your local parish. You may also request a copy by contacting the Diocese of Portland.
