What is the Death Café?
At Death Cafes people come together in a relaxed and safe setting to discuss life and death, drink tea and eat delicious cake. The objective of Death Cafe is "To increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives".
"Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows." - Pope Paul VI, Italian pope, 1897-1978
