St. Joseph Initiative

Death of St Joseph 2

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 is currently attempting to legalize assisted suicide.  H1194 and S1225 are under consideration by the Joint Committee on Public Health.

Ask your pastor about using the SCRIPT and BROCHURE to address parishioners after all your weekend Masses.
  • Read the 3-minute script after communion
  • Make the brochures available in the church or the bulletin

Witness for Life will provide your parish with  brochures!

Scrips are also available in POLISH and PORTUGUESE
