2010 Homily Aids

Homily ArtHealth care is a pivotal concern for Americans and an important ministry of the church. Often, health care issues are complex and difficult to understand. The Catholic Health Association of the United States is pleased to offer a complimentary homily service for parish priests to help clarify these issues for parishioners.

Written by prominent Catholic theologians and bioethicists, the homilies bring important issues to life in the context of Gospel and church teachings.
