Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament - 1pm to 5pm, Thursday, May 23rd      

In addition to our personal intentions, may we also pray that all Canadians may have greater access to palliative care (May 5 – 11 was National Hospice Palliative Care Week) Palliative care is a type of health care for patients and families facing life-limiting illness. Palliative care helps patients to achieve the best possible quality of life right up until the end of life. Palliative care is sometimes considered end-of-life care, with a main focus on comfort.
