White Mass on October 18th

In recognition of the dedicated work of health care professionals, the Diocese of Saint Cloud, Centracare Health St. Cloud Hospital and St. Benedict’s Senior Community in partnership with the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University, are inviting physicians, nurses and all healthcare professionals to the celebration of a Mass and blessing at the Sacred Heart Chapel in St. Joseph on Sunday, October 19th at 2:00 p.m. Traditionally known as a “White Mass,” this special celebration to acknowledge the unique contributions made by all health care professionals takes its name from the white coat or uniform often worn by those in the medical field. Bishop Donald Kettler will preside.  There will be a special blessing for health care professionals during the Mass, and a reception to follow.
