Caring for the Whole Person Initiative

SALINAS – The parish of Madonna del Sasso, 320 E. Laurel Drive, is participating in the Caring for the Whole Person Initiative (CWPI) in the Diocese of Monterey in California.

The Caring for the Whole Person Initiative is a statewide initiative of the California Bishops and Catholic healthcare systems that enable a parish to provide community support and meaningful resources to individuals and families.

The CWPI of Madonna del Sasso will:

  • work with current parish ministries, such as Bereavement, Funeral, and Visitation of the Sick and Home-bound.
  • work towards helping families and parishioners prepare for and be supported during serious illness or end-of-life.
  • provide resources for parishioners to consider and prepare for end-of-life decisions in light of Catholic teaching.

CWPI of Madonna del Sasso is offering its first workshop on how to prepare an Advance Health Care Directive on Tuesday, 22 June 2021 at 7pm in Cross Hall. Space is limited to 50 people.

Please register through the parish website or call contact Kathy Lett at 831-238-0118.
