White Mass for Healthcare Professionals
October 18, 2022
05:30:pm - 08:30:pm
Bishop John Doerfler will celebrate a White Mass, which will be followed by a program and reception on October 18, 2022, at OSF St. Francis Hospital Chapel, 3401 Ludington St. in Escanaba.  All Healthcare Professionals are welcome to attend.  The Mass will be followed by a Witness to Faith presented by Dr. William Hook, a former Air Force pilot, now physician and father of eight children.
The Healthcare Professional Mass is known by some as the “White Mass” because of the white lab coats traditionally worn by the Healthcare Profession. The White Mass dates back to the late 1800s and is held often near October 18, the feast day of St. Luke the Evangelist, the patron saint of physicians and surgeons.
