Advance Directives

Advanced Directives

Expressing your end-of-life choices clearly and officially for your family and health care staff.


Many of us have experienced serious illness or journeyed with a family member, loved one, or friend during serious illness and eventual death. We know first-hand the anxiety, anguish, and sense of loss that mark this journey — as well as some treasured moments of grace.

All adults should have an advance health care directive.

- Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA)

You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.

- Luke 12:40, New American Bible Revised Edition
