Advanced Directives

To assist Catholics of the state who wish to have an advance directive, the Minnesota Catholic Conference and Catholic Health Association Minnesota have prepared a Minnesota Catholic Health Care Directive that meets the state’s legal requirements and reflects the Church’s teaching. The Minnesota Catholic Health Directive Guide answers some basic questions about the law, Church teaching and completing a health care directive. We encourage you to download and print out both the guide and the directive.
