MADISON -- The Respect Life Committee of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish will host a two-part series, "Every Life is Worth Living."

On Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016, Fr. Pat Norris, OP, will present "Catholic Thought on End-of-Life Care." Father Norris is priest chaplain and ethicist at St. Mary’s Hospital and the bishop's coordinator for health care for the Diocese of Madison. He will explore Catholic ethical thought on assisted suicide/euthanasia and other end-of-life issues, including palliative care and hospice.

On Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2016, Barbara Sella will present "Catholic Thought on Stem Cell and Fetal Tissue Research." Sella is the director for respect life and social concerns at the Wisconsin Catholic Conference. She will discuss Catholic teachings on stem cell (both adult and embryonic) and fetal tissue research and provide an overview of local groups that work to support life-centric research.

Both presentations begin at 7 p.m. at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, 401 S. Owen Dr., in the gathering space off the main parish parking lot. The talks are presented free of charge.
