Mind, Body, & Spirit Half-Day Workshop

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 were discussed in our July 26 half-day workshop: “Mind, Body and Spirit: Appreciating and Serving the Whole Person.”
