Thursday, October 25, 2018

7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

At Christ Cathedral Campus

Garden Grove, CA 2840

The Whole Person Care Initiative is a new comprehensive approach to caring for the sick and
dying spearheaded by Catholic healthcare, the Catholic Church, community healthcare providers, and public health leaders. This effort seeks to remake how our healthcare system addresses death and dying and lays out a vision for a network of care that addresses both the physical and spiritual dimensions of care.

Join us on the Christ Cathedral Campus for this day-long summit which is open to the general
public, professional care providers, community health leaders, parish volunteers, and clergy.
Speakers include Ira Byock, MD, Megory Anderson, PhD. and Most Rev. Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange. Cost of attendance is $30.00/person and includes a light breakfast and lunch.

Online registration is available at: wholepersoncare.eventbrite.com

Excerpt from Bishop Vann's letter of invitation to the upcoming Whole Person Care Conference:

In a time when divisions are palpable, politics divide and chaos seems to reign, and we strive for holiness as a Church, we never cease to hold close to us those who are vulnerable in our midst. The Whole Person Care Initiative is one powerful way that the Church seeks to accompany those most in need, as we aim for the following vision that Persons in our congregations, communities and health care systems are loved, wanted and worthy, and will be prepared for and supported in health and serious illness through the end of life. The Whole Person Care initiative is the fruit of ongoing prayer and reflection among the Bishops of California and the leaders of Catholic Health Care. We can be very grateful for, and proud of this ongoing initiative.

The “Classic Catholic Approach” is always that where there is a “NO” there must be a “YES”! Thus, we must do more than say “No” to the culture of death; we must say “Yes” to the fullness of the God of love and life! To that end, I invite you to Christ Cathedral campus on Thursday, October 25 to join me for the Whole Person Care Conference, a day-long summit gathering professional care providers, community health leaders, parish volunteers, and clergy to learn how together we can make the Whole Person Care vision a reality.
