VITALITY HONORS HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS AT THE ANNUAL WHITE MASS AND ST. LUKE AWARDS PRESENTATION

On Sunday October 22nd, Bishop Sullivan was the main celebrant and homilist for the White Mass for Physicians, Nurses and Healthcare Professionals of the Camden Diocese. This Mass is in recognition of the work of healthcare providers as they continue the healing mission of Jesus. The Mass was celebrated at St. Luke’s Church, Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, in Stratford. Joining the parish congregation were nearly 100 physicians, nurses and guests of the three 2017 Saint Luke Award recipients. Each year the South Jersey Catholic Medical Association recognizes individuals who are exemplary examples of the Catholic faith in their work in healthcare. This year’s recipients were Dr. Anthony Wehbe, Dr. Christine Kimler and Barbara Holfelner.

The Awards Ceremony was held immediately following the Mass during a celebration brunch in the school hall. The speaker for the event was Father Jeffrey Cesarone, O. Praem, J.D. who spoke on the “Moral Issues Raised by the Practice of Modern Medicine in America.”
