The Catholic Physicians Guild of San Antonio has long been the proud sponsor of the White Mass in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. We hope that the healthcare professionals who attend are richly blessed and strengthened in their faith. Archbishop Gustavo will have a special message to help us live out our faith in the healthcare field.
Former CPGSA President Mitch Finnie and wife Chrissy with Archbishop Gustavo


To make it a success we need your help.
We need to get the word out to as many of our fellow Catholic healthcare providers as possible.
We need a
great turn out
for this year's
Mass!

June Guild Meeting
   
Our next meeting will be
Monday, June, 4th 6 PM
University of the Incarnate Word
   
Our speaker will be
Dr. Thomas Baril,
Professor of Medical Ethics
McNeese State University
   
His talk is entitled:
“When Killing Patients Became Moral”
   
   
   
Dr. Baril has faced ethically difficult medical issues in his own life and found support in our group.
   
When he spoke to the Guild previously he gave a chilling account of the history of the eugenics movement of the 1920's and 30's and its parallels to the culture of death we face today. No doubt this presentation will be just as compelling.
   
Mass at 6 PM in Our Lady's Chapel.
After mass we will meet in the Special Collections Room
on the second floor of the Mabee Library
directly in back of the Admin building.
   
   


The Guild proudly supports
our Catholic Nurses!

Medical professionals united to share in Christ's healing ministry
 
The CPGSA is an association of healthcare professionals that informs, organizes, and inspires its members to uphold the principles of the Catholic faith in the practice of medicine. We come together to fellowship, to serve and to be Christ to a world in need of healing.

The Guild is not just for physicians but also dentists, nurses, pharmacists, therapists and all others who practice healthcare professionally. Students preparing for careers in healthcare are especially welcome. Anyone who takes an interest in healthcare from a fully Catholic perspective is invited to join us!
