DIOCESE OF RALEIGH ADVANCE DIRECTIVE

Legal and medical issues related to the planning for the end of life can be complicated and difficult. The Diocese of Raleigh has created a resource which expresses our Catholic teach-ing about the sanctity and beauty of life, while assisting the faithful in the practical decisions that must be made at the end of life. This Advance Directive document, which includes a Healthcare Power of Attorney with definitions, instruc-tions and the appointment of a health care agent, was prepared in consultation with both Catholic Bioethics and legal experts in the applicable laws of the State of North Carolina. This resource is recommended to you for your use to assist in creating a legal document that reflects your wishes for the end of your own life or that of your loved one. You may download a copy of this document by accessing the website. See more from the Diocese.
