What is a White Mass? This is a special opportunity to gather health care professionals under the patronage of St. Luke (the patron Saint of physicians) to ask God’s blessing upon healthcare workers, the patients they serve and their work. The mass is called a “White Mass” as health care workers traditionally wear white coats but is also a symbol in the Church of hope and comfort to the ill and hospitalized. During the Mass, Catholic physicians, residents, medical students and health care workers renew their special promise to carry out the healing work of the Lord while abiding by His laws.
