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 Christ 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 support Catholic physicians in the metroplex and throughout the United States.
We hear speakers or have a journal club, covering topics that synthesize our faith as Catholics and our profession as medical care providers.
Date: The first Tuesday of even numbered months. Location: During the COVID-19 pandemic, events are held virtually at 7:30 PM. When the pandemic has passed and we enter Phase 4, events will resume in person at 7:00 PM, in the Parish Commons at St. Rita Catholic Community (stritaparish.net/campus-map). Contact us to have your name added to the EVite list for upcoming events (email@example.com).
Annual White Mass
The highlight of each year is the celebration of the White Mass, held near 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.

Do No Harm Conference - every other year
