Mind, Body, & Spirit Half-Day Workshop

Please join us Thursday, July 26, for a half-day workshop: “Mind, Body and Spirit: Appreciating and Serving the Whole Person.”

In their recent pastoral letter on mental health, the California Catholic Bishops stated, “Like Christ, we are called to tend to the whole person–body, mind, and spirit.” This rings true, but questions immediately arise as to how mind, body, and spirit are related. Should they be equally important for Catholics? Does a deep spirituality depend on having a sound mind and body? Can people with serious mental health cahllenges have authentic spiritual lives? Does stigma keep us from sharing our spiritual, mental, and bodily struggles with each other? What does it actually mean for a human to thrive or flourish? How do parish leaders and parents present those concepts to those they serve?

These questions and those brought to the workshop by attendees will be discussed.

English-language session takes place 9 am – noon at the Diocesan Pastoral Center (3888 Paducah Dr., San Diego 92117), featuring speakers Auxiliary Bishop John Dolan, Dr. Christauria Welland, Psy.D., and Jordan Friske, creator of Catholic Fitness Training.

El taller en español (6:30-9 pm, en el Centro Pastoral Diocesano [3888 Paducah Dr.,  San Diego 92117]) incluye presentadores Padre Jose Castillo de la Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Mote Carmelo, Dra. Christauria Welland, Psy.D., y Juan Lopez de Catholic Fitness Training.

There is no charge for these workshops, but registration is required. Register yourself or your group below.
