The Art of Dying Well:

is a new website that offers a helping hand to those grappling with issues around death and dying. Based in the Catholic tradition but open to all, it features real-life stories about dealing with the journey through death and eternal life. It will launch in November—the traditional month of remembering and praying for the dead.
