Atlantic Canadian bishops approve last rites before euthanasia: 'Pope Francis is our model' - Lifesite

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Yarmouth; Archbishop Martin Currie of St. John’s; Archbishop Valéry Vienneau of Moncton; Bishop Brian Dunn of Antigonish; Bishop Anthony Daniels of Grand Falls; Bishop Claude Champagne, OMI, of Edmundston; Bishop Richard Grecco of Charlottetown; Bishop Peter Hundt of Corner Brook and Labrador, Newfoundland; Bishop Robert Harris of Saint John, Newfoundland, and Bishop Daniel Jodoin of Bathurst. Alberta bishops: Accompaniment means a call to repentance The Alberta and Northwest Territories bishops’ Vademecum, as does the Atlantic bishops’ letter, calls for pastoral accompaniment of those Catholics arranging for assisted suicide or euthanasia. But it cautions against “passivity before such a decision even in the face of seeming serenity,” and notes that those Catholics are in “spiritual peril.” The Alberta bishops note that some might not be “aware euthanasia is a grave sin” and their freedom could be “impaired” through “depression, drugs or pressure from others.” But at the same time, the bishops emphasize that euthanasia and assisted sui...

Sanaz Shirshekar Envisions Saint John As 'Playground For Architects To Experiment' - Huddle Today

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

It allowed me to do both." It also allowed her to work at two renowned firms in Canada and the United States and has now brought the Toronto-born architect to New Brunswick to start a business of her own. After graduating from architecture school at McGill in 2006, Shirshekar started working for Toronto-based KPMB as a project architect. There, she got to work on projects such as the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, the UBC Alumni Centre, The Globe & Mail's new interior offices and the Fort York Branch Library. "We were aiming for it to be the 100th public library in Toronto, and it turned out to be the 101st," says Shirshekar, "which is still cool." Fort York Branch Library (Image: torontopubliclibrary.ca) From there she went to work in New York with Yabu Pushelberg as a senior designer. She was in the heart of Soho, working on projects that were more private and high-end, including a resort for Hyatt in Los Cabos, Mexico, and a project for a residential client in Bejing. For Shirshekar, it helped make her architecture experience more versatile. "I took that opportunity on because at KPMB I was getting a lot of those community, public space building projects. But I also wanted to be a little bit more seasoned as an architect and get some architectural interior experience," she says. "Yabu Pushelberg is really the expert for that. They are world renowned. They're really good at what they do and they're internationally known for their interior design excellence, so I really wanted to bring the architecture and the interior design together." Shirshekar recently moved to New Brunswick to be with her husband, Jamie Irving, the vice-president of Brunswick News. At that point, she was ready to start her own practice, Studio Shirshekar. "I feel all architects at some point, you feel like you've gotten enough experience and you want to give yourself an opportunity to try it out," she says. "Maybe it's not for everyone, but for me, I think i...

Surviving the death care business - CBC.ca

MacDonald said."Some of it is burnout. You have to make sure with all the stress you deal with on a daily basis you know how to relax yourself, how to unwind."The New Brunswick Funeral Directors and Embalmers Association doesn't keep statistics on retention rates, however, funeral homes are "constantly looking for licensed funeral directors," said executive director Marc Melanson.While the pay can be appealing - $47,319 annually according to the Department of Post Secondary Education Training and Labour - compassion fatigue is a reality, along with unconventional work hours."It's not a Monday to Friday nine-to-five job," said Melanson. "It's evenings, weekends and holidays."People who get into the funeral profession genuinely want to help people. But a funeral home is never closed."Viewing rooms are often rearranged, making physicality a key component of the job. (Sarah Trainor/CBC News)The workday can be fluid and intense. It might start with MacDonald doing prep work on an infant that would afford parents more time with their child, then a full shift in gears to oversee a 103-year-old's celebration of life service in a space filled with laughter."You wear a lot of different hats and it changes so quickly," she said."I could be making funeral arrangements with a family, I could be directing a funeral, I could be painting - like literally building maintenance."We get dirty in our suits. We garden, mow the lawns, wash the cars, we do it all."The job requires a good deal of physicality. Viewing rooms are frequently rearranged to make space for what families want to bring to a visitation. Personal touches have been as dainty as jewelry and as grand as a motorcycle.Some scenes hard to processNot everyone is in a bed when they die, and moving a body can take some physical and mental effort."Some things you see you don't ever forget, and you wish you could. Especially when you walk into a scene where you can imagine their last moments."MacDonald said those moments can be difficult to process."It's hard to think of them as being a person in the way that you're protecting your mental state," she said."You say, 'I have to move them from one place to another,' and after, you reflect on that and think, 'OK, that was a human being and I feel terrible for them. And I'm going to probably have bad dreams for a while....
