President’s Message

Welcome! We are a group of mental heath practitioners that come from many career pathways withcpac-logo-final a common passion, our Catholic faith. Understanding that our faith and the faith of our clients is an important consideration when pursuing their mental health and healing. Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron and one man sharpens another” – reminds us of our potential to grow when we come together, share, challenge and teach each other. Each effort of CPAC is to enhance this sharpening, supporting the Holy Catholic Church and provide ethical, faith-based services to clients who practice their Catholic faith. Please reflect on our Mission statement which guides the practices of CPAC.
