ANNUAL "WHITE MASS"
Bishop Foys invites all healthcare professionals to the Annual “White Mass” to be held at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption on Thursday, October 27th at 6:30 p.m. The annual “White Mass” gathers the faithful to pray for God’s blessing upon all who labor in the healing ministry of the Church, such as physicians, nurses, compassionate care ministers, chaplains, mental healthcare workers, and all men and women religious and catholic laypersons serving in the healthcare profession. A special blessing will be extended to the faithful who care for God’s people with compassion.
Please prayerfully consider joining together with your fellow Catholic physicians and other healthcare professionals to celebrate the Eucharist.
The annual “White Mass” is being hosted by the Sts. Teresa of Calcutta and Faustina Guild of the Catholic Medical Association.
The Catholic Medical Association is a growing professional organization that is committed in supporting physicians and healthcare professionals in offering health care in conformity to Christ the Divine Physician. As Catholics we are called to integrate the teaching and principals of our faith into our personal and professional lives. This is particularly challenging today in the field of medicine where being true to our Catholic faith may place us in opposition to some popular cultural values. The Catholic Medical Association provides an excellent opportunity to grow in the knowledge and practice of your Catholic faith and at the same time to give support as well as receive support from other Catholic physicians and healthcare professionals.
To all healthcare professionals in the Diocese of Covington, your support in forming this guild will help to bring about the “Culture of Life” so that one day every human being will be respected throughout every stage in life. Our voices need to be heard.
For more information on the White Mass and the Catholic Medical Association, contact Faye Roch at (859) 392-1500.
God bless you,

Election Prayer to Mary
O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burned of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection. Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God’s law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life.
Trusting in your most powerful intercession, we pray...
Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To thee do we come, before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.
“Let weak and frail man come here suppliantly to adore the Sacrament of Christ, not to discuss high things, or wish to penetrate difficulties, but to bow down to secret things in humble veneration, and to abandon God’s mysteries to God, for Truth deceives no man – Almighty God can do all things. a.m.en.”
– St. Paul of the Cross

1,001 REASONS WHY IT'S GREAT TO BE CATHOLIC
by Robert M. Haddad
3...Being over 2,000 years old, the Catholic Church is the only organized society that has outlasted all other empires, kingdoms and nations since the times of the Roman Empire.
In a letter from Bishop Foys ...
“On behalf of the generous people of the Diocese of Covington, I am pleased to announce that St. Anthony Parish will receive a 2016 Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal Service Grant in the amount of $4,000.00.” This was granted for use with our Guatemalan community.
Thank you, Bishop!
