The Healthcare Professionals Mass, also known as the ‘White Mass’ has been a tradition in the United States since the late 1800s. The White Mass was originally named for the white lab coats worn by many in the healthcare profession. Healthcare workers bring God’s love and care to every person they meet seeking to heal the body and spirit.
This special Mass honors our dedicated Healthcare Professionals as they continue the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Those involved in the healthcare field including: physicians, nurses, chaplains, physical therapists, mental health caregivers, chiropractors, receptionists, administration, dietary staff, lab workers and all who work to keep our community healthy will be honored.
During the Mass, all healthcare professionals receive a special blessing from our celebrant, Archbishop Jose Gomez.
Please join us and watch the 2020 live streamed mass from the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels that celebrated the work done by our dedicated healthcare professionals. We honor and thank them for their sacrifices and care, especially in this time of the pandemic.
