St. George plans end-of-life seminar

by Staff Reports

St. George Catholic Church will hold a seminar on end-of life issues on Wednesday.

The program will be held in the parish hall at 7 p.m. The goal of the seminar is to inform families, in advance, of what may be done for someone approaching death, or someone who has died.

The presenters will focus on decisions that families must sometimes make under pressure or in confusion at or near the time of death.

Leah Sumner, local attorney, will speak on legal issues and estate planning. Father Larry Niese, pastor of St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Woodstock, will talk about the Catholic Church’s position on end-of-life care – and on the sacraments and liturgy offered by the church for the sick, dying and deceased.

Phillip Leonard, who is in charge of Community Relations for Hospice Advantage of Fayetteville, will speak on hospice care for the terminally ill.

Terry Daviston, funeral director at McKoon Funeral Home in Newnan, will discuss funeral planning and services offered for the deceased and family. A period for questions will follow each presentation.
