- Walking with Moms in Need: A Year of Service
- The Diocese will develop a wider, stronger parish network for the Gabriel Project. The Gabriel Project has proven to be an effective way for women and families to connect with caring, capable parish teams that can assist them in choosing life for their children.
- We will promote throughout the year the Bishop Gallegos Maternity Home and the Mother Theresa Maternity Home as havens of hope for moms-in-need.
- We will promote throughout the year the quality services of the Sacramento Life Center for moms and dads in need.
End of Life Care
Whole Person Care Initiative
The Whole Person Care Initiative seeks to ensure that parishioners and patients are accompanied, loved, and supported in their serious illnesses and end-of-life journeys. To that end, the Initiative will provide each Health Ministry, Diocese, and Parish with tools, resources, guidance, training, and other support to implement Whole Person Care.
Embracing Our Dying
If those who are dying are embraced by their family and their community they will not seek death but will live their last days well, and then accept death when it comes. The Embracing Our Dying webpages provide information about Catholic teachings on the end of life and also related statements and documents, including the Catholic Advance Health Care Directive Form.
