On October 18th we celebrate the feast of St. Luke, patron of physicians. The Catholic Medical Association New York Metropolitan Guild and Dominican Healthcare Ministry will host a special Mass for Healthcare Workers. All physicians, nurses, medical students, healthcare professionals are especially invited, as well as anyone who would like to pray for and with healthcare workers.
The Mass will be at 6:30pm at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 411 E 68th St, between 1st and York Ave. We will conclude with a consecration prayer for healthcare workers and individual blessings with a relic of St. Luke, and a reception will follow.
May this feast day and Mass be a support to all healthcare workers, and an encouragement in their imitation of Christ the Divine Physician. If you have any questions or would like any more information about services and support for Catholic healthcare workers you can contact Fr. Hyacinth at director@healthcareministry.org, or the local Catholic Medical Association at nycatholicmed@gmail.com.
