Denver’s Westwood neighborhood is one of Denver’s poorest communities. It hasn’t had a grocery store in 20 years, and the sidewalks don’t connect, causing difficulties for pedestrians. Without substantial city investments, community groups are leading the effort to make Westwood thrive.
“People are growing their food and they are really interested in health and nutrition,” said Eric Kornacki, executive director of Re:Vision and a current resident in Westwood.
The Archdiocese laid out its position as part of an FAQ on physician-assisted suicide and the sacraments posted this week to the Denver Catholic website. The concern is that people might not realize the depth of the Church’s opposition if people who take their own lives are accorded a funeral Mass.
