The Diocese’s annual White Mass drew Catholic physicians, health care workers, dentists and medical students to St. Patrick Cathedral in Harrisburg on Oct. 20 to recognize their vocation and pray for God’s blessings upon their work.
Bishop Ronald Gainer was the principal celebrant and homilist for the Mass.
The annual Mass is sponsored by the Harrisburg Diocesan Guild of the Catholic Medical Association, a chartered professional association of Catholic doctors and other health care workers who are united by faith and committed to the ethical practice of medicine.
The Catholic Medial Guild provides spiritual and professional support to members. Since being chartered in 2009, it has sponsored Lenten days of reflection, summer family picnics at the Carmelite monastery in Elysburg and the White Mass.
Catholic physicians, dentists, medical students, health care workers and clergy interested in learning more about the Catholic Medical Association should visit www.cathmed.org or www.cathmedharrisburg.org/.
