The Most Reverend George V. Murry, S.J., Bishop of Youngstown, will be the principle celebrant and homilist for the twenty-first annual White Mass on Sunday, February 12, 2017, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Columba Cathedral, 154 West Wood Street in Youngstown.   The White Mass is for all health professionals, including mental health workers, to recognize and celebrate the ministry of all those in the healing professions.

A reception will follow in St. Columba Hall next to the cathedral. The annual White Mass is sponsored by the Lourdes Guild, an association of Catholic physicians and dentists of the Diocese of Youngstown, in cooperation with the Youngstown Council of Catholic Nurses and the diocesan Office of Pro-Life, Marriage and Family Life.  Together these groups assist the diocesan Church in upholding and communicating Catholic medical ethics to the health professions and throughout the wider culture.
