Mental Health Ministry
Featured on Pope’s Prayer Network
We pray that mental health ministry becomes an integral ministry in the Church that is available in every Catholic parish and community. We pray for the elimination of the stigma and discrimination that people living with a mental illness encounter.
Monthly day of prayer for Mental Health
We pray that the elderly who struggle with frailty and mental health challenges will always be treated with respect and dignity. Pope Francis spoke about the importance of honoring the elderly and treating them with tenderness when he visited a center for elderly Alzheimer’s patients. “Perhaps some of them have lost their memory, but they are the symbol of the memory of a people; they are the roots of our homeland, of our humanity. They are the roots, and the young must go there to take the sap from the roots, to carry civilization onwards”
