St. Joseph Initiative

Preventing PAS legalization in MA

As the patron of a happy death, we ask the intercession of St. Joseph to help us educate people about the dangers of assisted suicide and how it undermines human dignity.

The Massachusetts legislature has reintroduced the bill in 2019.

How it works

SCRIPT: WFL provides a 3 minute script that is read after every weekend Mass.

BROCHURE:  WFL provides a brochure to be inserted in the bulletin and made available at the parish.

Both the script and brochure are available in SPANISH:  SCRIPT_SPA & BROCHURE_SPA

Scrips are also available in POLISH and PORTUGUESE
