DAY OF PRAYER — Eileen Materi, spiritual development chair for the Catholic Women’s League at the Cathedral of the Holy Family Parish in Saskatoon, spoke about the importance of advocating for palliative care for all Canadians during a national day of prayer May 4. Across the country CWL members were encouraged to sign up for “12 Hours for Palliative Care” on that day, as a witness to the sanctity of human life and a way to raise awareness, understanding and appreciation for palliative care. Mass and prayer services for the CWL day of prayer were also held in other parishes in the diocese, including St. Patrick’s in Saskatoon and St. Joseph’s in Kindersley. The CWL was also circulating a petition to government urging recognition and funding for hospice palliative care across Canada.
