Preparing for a Happy Death and the Life to Come is designed to engage Catholics in the ancient prayer and practice of preparing for a happy death and the fullness of life to come. Modules include:

  • Let’s Talk About Death and the Afterlife
  • Understanding the Human Experience of Dying
  • Planning for the End of Life
  • Accompanying Those at the End of Life
  • Catholic Sacraments and Funeral Rites
  • Becoming a Compassionate Community

The course can be presented as a six-module program or as one or more stand-alone presentations. You decide what approach and schedule will work best. The resources on this page provide everything you need to offer the course in your parish.
