Ministry to People With Mental Illness

As people of the Catholic Diocese of Memphis, we are dedicated to living our Baptismal commitment: by embracing all who suffer from mental illness, by encouraging other to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church and the examples given by our Savior Jesus Christ, and by offering support and acceptance to all persons affected by mental illness, including their families.

The NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) – WHIM (With Hope in Mind) Support Group (for family members and friends of those with Mental Illness) meets at Church of the Holy Spirit, in Room 105 on Thursday mornings from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon.

Ministry to the Sick

This ministry embraces love for others, as its fundamental concept along with our Lord’s concern for the sick & lonely.

As a trained minister you bring compassion, communion and become sacramental presence of Christ for those sick and homebound.

The training is designed to provide you with the basic tools that will be helpful in your ministry.
