The “Life-Giving Love” Campaign is a national campaign in favour of palliative and home care, and against euthanasia and assisted suicide. It is an initiative of the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF), supported by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Dioceses, parishes, families, movements and associations are invited to download and print all the free tools provided by the Life-Giving Love Campaign. These can be used to organize discussion groups to reflect on the gravity of the situation and to invite others to become more involved in caring for the vulnerable and engaging in this life or death public debate.
The campaign’s goals:
To inform Christians about the major issues surrounding this question; to introduce them to the age-old wisdom of the Church on the subject; to support their involvement with the sick and the dying, and to prepare them to take political action with a view to creating a legislative environment more hospitable to life.
The campaign’s method: In keeping with the important document “Elements of a National Pastoral Initiative for Life and the Family” – adopted by the CCCB in 2011 – the campaign provides training tools for the advancement “of the common good and of civic responsibility”.
These tools are available free on this website:
