White Mass for Healthcare Workers - The John Paul II Guild of the Catholic Medical Association (CMA) and the diocesan Office for Social Concerns are sponsoring a White Mass for health care workers on the feast of St. Luke, October 18, 2011 at 5:15 p.m. at St. Joseph Cathedral in Columbus. St. Luke is the patron of health care workers. The White Mass is an opportunity for members of the health care professions to recommit themselves to serving Christ in their care for and healing of the sick.
