Counseling and health services in a faithful Catholic school or college express the healing ministry of Christ and should be consistent with Catholic doctrine and moral principles. Counselors and medical staff “must respect and uphold the religious mission of the institution… They should maintain professional standards and promote the institution’s commitment to human dignity and the common good” (U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services).
