Pastoral MASH Committee

The Pastoral MASH (Mental & Spiritual Health Committee)


Leading with compassion by providing support and resources for mental and spiritual health and wellness to a diverse and multicultural Episcopal community, we are committed to the key principles of:

    • Advocacy
    • Connection
    • Courage
    • Discernment
    • Faith
    • Justice


Pastoral Mental and Spiritual Health Committee  is a group of ordained and lay leaders, with ties to the mental and spiritual health fields. Originally established as The Episcopal Mental and Spiritual Health Ministry  by Bishop Stokes during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to the ongoing support of Episcopalians in the Diocese of New Jersey.  We have come together to gather and share mental and spiritual health resources and advocate for mental and spiritual health wellness within the diocese.  The committee maintains its own Web site of Spiritual and Mental Health Resources at
