The Dying Healed Program is a project of LifeCanada which works to foster a deep and lasting awareness of the meaning and dignity of each human life and the meaning and dignity of all human suffering, especially at the end of life, when the human person is preparing for their final moments on earth.
Our aim is to train people both in the concepts of “Dying Healed” and to train volunteers to spend time with those who suffer, those socially isolated or those who are dying, so that they can experience the power of human presence and obtain some healing both spiritually and emotionally.
The beauty of this program is that it is not complicated and it doesn’t require advanced degrees. It requires faith in our own ability to effect change just by being who we are and giving of our time to those most in need. If we don’t reach out to the suffering, who will?
