The Art of Dying Well


The Catholic Bishops’ Conference have launched a new website for the month of November, the moth of the Holy Souls. Called ‘The Art of Dying Well‘ the site offers support to those grappling with issues around the meaning of death and dying. Based in the Catholic tradition, but open to all, it features real-life stories about dealing with the journey through death to eternal life.

The site is for those who are dying, their friends and family, for carers and makes a contribution to the national debate. Expert advice has been sought from professionals in palliative care, ethics, chaplaincy, history and media.


Here is a video clip from the website which looks at the journey of one man’s terminal illness.
