About the Guild

Many parts, one body...
Uniting all who care for the sick
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!

Our Mission:
To provide a professional resource which embodies the practice of authentic Catholic medicine in support of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, and to foster networking, collaboration, community service, education, formation, and outreach in accordance with the principles of the Catholic Medical Association.

Meetings are held every first or second Monday of the month at the University of the Incarnate Word.

Meeting dates and locations vary but we always begin with Mass at 6 PM. Meetings begin shortly after the mass and feature guest speakers, discussions on topics of interest and planning for upcoming events. The latest information will always be posted on this web site.

White Mass:
The annual White Mass is an archdiocesan event that is the highlight of each year. It is a special mass for to all who work in healthcare. Our next White Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller at St. Luke Catholic Church. The date and time will be announced shortly.

The Guild seeks to be of service by participating in local health fairs and other health-related events. It also supports mission trips, pro-life groups and other groups doing good work in our community and seeks to be a resource to medical students and others entering the healthcare field.
