2021 Conference Theme: Preparing a Welcoming Table - Unity and Diversity in the Church
The 2021 Catholic Psychotherapy Conference will strategically address ways to foster healing and restoration in today’s diverse Church by addressing the psychological effects of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, culture, and faith. The conference will outline common factors that contribute to these various issues and propose evidence-based therapeutic interventions and other means of collaboration within the Church.
We ask for the intercession of St. Martin de Porres, patron of mixed-race people, public health workers, and all those seeking racial harmony to pray for us and our world:
“St Martin, teach us to be generous with the gifts that God has given us. Make us sympathetic toward those who are suffering and afflicted. Pray to our Redeemer and to Our Lady of Mercy that we may always be kind and generous to our neighbors because they are the children of our heavenly Father. O St Martin, we need strong faith in God and His holy Church, especially in these days when religion is often considered unimportant. Bring all people to a knowledge and love of the true Church, that they may find the way of salvation and happiness. Ask Christ and Our Mother of Good Counsel to make us faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in life and in death. Amen.”
