This document explains Catholic teaching on end-of life-care and enables you to appoint a healthcare agent to act on your behalf in the event you are unable to communicate or participate in healthcare decisions.The document complies with Vermont’s Advance Directive Law as well as with Church teaching. Bioethicist Deacon Pete Gummere will lead a discussion on the Vermont Catholic Advance Directive at:
