Pastoral Care for Clergy and Clergy Families

“The concept of wellness lies at the heart of the Gospel. Jesus said that he came so that we might have abundant life. If we are to live out—and live into—the vision that Jesus Christ held for the world, we are committed to his holistic understanding of health and wholeness.” Credo, Lifelong Wellness

Wellness is more than the absence of illness; it is wellbeing in mind, body, and soul. The Diocese of Texas strives to support its clergy and their families as they strive toward physical, spiritual, emotional, vocational, and financial health. Clergy wellness affects more than the member of the clergy and the clergy family. It promotes the wellbeing of the congregation, school, or other organization that the clergy person serves. Healthy leaders lead to healthier communities.

To the right are links to some of the resources available for clergy and their families. Some of them, like the links to Recovery information and The Living Compass, also support wellness more broadly within the organizations of the diocese.
