  • In recognition of the work and dedication of those in the medical profession, the Catholic Health Professionals of Houston and the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston will host the Annual White Mass at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 20, at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, 1111 St. Joseph Parkway, Houston. Rev. Lawrence Jozwiak will be the celebrant. All doctors, nurses and other medical personnel are invited to attend and encouraged to wear their white coats.

    Following mass, there will be an optional catered reception and speaker, Dr. Michael Brescia, MD. Dr. Brescia will be discussing “The Nature and Treatment of Human Suffering”.  For more info and to RSVP for the reception, please visit

    The White Mass is so named because health care workers traditionally wear white coats. In addition, white is a symbol in the Church of hope and comfort to the ill and hospitalized. Having an annual White Mass for health care professionals is a tradition within the Catholic Church honoring St. Luke as Patron of Physicians and those who serve in the medical field. During the Mass, Catholic physicians, residents, medical students and healthcare workers renew their special promise to carry out the healing work of the Lord while abiding by His laws.
