Whole and Healthy Church

Whole & Healthy Church is the Diocese of California’s comprehensive policy of guidelines and procedures that enables us to proactively work in a way that can protect our beloved community. These new policies are centered around protecting bodies and souls, hearts and minds.

It is expected that all clergy canonically resident and licensed to officiate within the Diocese of California will receive, read, and understand the Whole & Healthy Church Policies and Procedures (in English or Spanish) and to send a signed copy of the acknowledgement letter (in English or Spanish) to the diocesan office.
