What is it?
Hope & Wellness is the faith-based mental health ministry at St. Simon. Our goals are to promote and provide compassionate support for the mental health and overall wellbeing of our parish community. Our intention is to offer, through a variety of means, both hope and healing as we face life’s challenges together as a faith community.
Who is it for?
It is for everyone. Emotional health and an overall sense of well-being are something we all need, strive for and work toward. As human beings, we are composed of body, mind, spirit/soul. “Like Christ, we are called to tend to the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.” (Hope & Healing, A Pastoral Letter from the Bishops of California May 2018, pg 7) Therefore, as a parish community, we are called to minister to one another’s physical, spiritual, and mental/emotional needs.
How will I be served?
This ministry is a work-in-progress. As our first action, we are assessing the needs of our parish community. We invite you to attend the listening sessions we plan, or contact us anytime with your feedback.
