Upholding the Principles of the Catholic Faith in the Practice of Medicine
Formed in 2011, the Catholic Physicians Guild of Dallas is a chartered Guild of the Catholic Medical Association. Membership is open to medical providers from around the Diocese of Dallas as well as residents, medical students, and clergy. We gather regularly for fellowship, discussion, and spiritual growth—faithful to our vocation as Catholic physicians. Deacon Stump serves as our Chaplain.
Our Mission Statement
We come together as the Catholic Physicians Guild of Dallas in order to grow in spirit of Christ in our personal and professional lives and to bring His Spirit to all those that are touched by our vocation as healers. We seek to uphold the principles of the Catholic faith, demonstrate Catholic medical ethics to others in the medical profession and society at large, and to support Catholic physicians in the metroplex and throughout our United States."
Our general meetings take place the first Tuesday of every other month at 7 PM at St. Monica's Family Life Center (room 109 in the Family Life Center - best accessed via Midway Road). Our topics cover various issues that synthesize our faith as Catholics and our profession as physicians and medical providers.
Continuing Medical Education
Each quarter we present topics that qualify as 1 hour of ethics continuing medical education (CME) credit provided by Children's Medical Center of Dallas. CME credit is available to those who are members.
Annual White Mass
The highlight of each year is the celebration of the White Mass, the Feast Day of St. Luke the Physician. Each year the Mass is celebrated with a Bishop from the Diocese of Dallas. All healthcare professionals are invited.
Local Guild membership dues are $55 per year. One can become a national Catholic Medical Association member here.
