NCBC Ethicist Speaking TONIGHT

John A. Di Camillo, Staff Ethicist at The National Catholic Bioethics Center, will be giving a presentation tonight at St. John of the Cross Parish in Roslyn, PA from 7 to 9 P.M.

NCBC Staff Ethicist, John A. Di Camillo

John will be speaking on end-of-life care and decision making. The seminar answers the question: Are my actions or is my inaction causing death? John will highlight some of the issues that arise when caring for the elderly, the disabled, or the dying. John will discuss many of those issues that are confusing to the average person and misrepresented by popular culture. The program will address Catholic moral teaching in relation to the question of disproportionate means of treatment, the use of assisted nutrition and hydration, and the trouble with euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, and advance directives. 

The speech will be followed by a period open for questions and answers.

John Di Camillo's presentation tonight is in conjunction with his excellent work representing the NCBC as a sitting member the Respect Life Leadership Council of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. John's presentation comes as one of a five-part series on Life Affirming Choices and is sponsored and coordinated by the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Office For Life and Family.

The Church location is:
St. John of the Cross Parish
2741 Woodland Rd
Roslyn, PA 19001
