Event with Saint Gianna Molla’s daughter October 28; Topic is end-of-life care

SAINT PAUL - A number of organizations, including the Minnesota Catholic Conference, (the public policy voice of the Catholic Church in Minnesota), are giving Minnesota Catholics a graced opportunity: the chance to hear from the daughter of a canonized saint, St. Gianna Beretta Molla, on an issue of critical importance.


Dr. Gianna Emanuela Molla, daughter of St. Gianna, will be the keynote at the "Take My Hand, Not My Life" symposium, a discussion concerning end-of-life care.

Dr. Molla, who practiced as a geriatrician in her local Italy before giving up her career to take care of her aging father, will share from her professional and personal experience on the unexpected joy to be found in caring for another.

She and a number of local speakers will offer a positive Catholic response to the ongoing end-of-life care conversation -- especially timely in Minnesota, as legislation to legalize assisted suicide has been introduced here.
