A new lecture series will examine the Catholic tradition and view of the end of life and dying well, over four Tuesdays in July.

Brother Linus M. Martz, O.P., will present “Death Be Not Proud: The Art of Dying in the Catholic Tradition,” on July 9, 16, 23, and 30, at 6:45 p.m. at St. Vincent Ferrer Parish on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.

The topics include July 9, Faith, Hope, and a Happy Death; July 16, The Art of Dying; July 23, Last Rites; and July 30, Eternal Life.

Each talk is presented as a standalone topic. It is not necessary to attend all lectures in the series to understand individual presentations.

The talks are free and all are welcome. St. Vincent Ferrer is part of the Parish of St. Vincent Ferrer and St. Catherine of Siena.
