Mass for Health Care Professionals set for April 28
All health care professionals are invited to attend a Mass celebrated by Bishop John M. LeVoir at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 28, at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm. Patients are welcome to come and pray with and for the health care professionals in the Diocese of New Ulm.
A reception and information/business meeting, hosted by the New Ulm Guild of the Catholic Medical Association, will be held in Leifeld Hall for all interested health care professionals following the Mass. Fr. Tom Knoblach, ethical consultant for the Diocese of St. Cloud, will speak on the subject of physician-assisted suicide.
The Mass for Health Care Professionals is often times referred to as “White Mass,” taking the name from the white coat most commonly worn by those in the medical field. The tradition of the White Mass in the United States originated in the development of the national Catholic Medical Association in the early 1930s. The special Mass celebrates the sacred care that health care professionals provide to the unborn, the sick, the elderly, the disabled, and the poor and vulnerable.
The event is sponsored by the New Ulm Guild of the Catholic Medical Association. For further information, call Dr. James Joyce, (507) 794-6012.
