Announcing: Catholic Physician’s and Allied Healthcare Professionals and Medical Students Retreat: "Theology of the Body and its Application to the Health Care Profession"
Cindy Leonard, July 6, 2017 (Church Teachings)

" I invite you to attend this retreat designed to provide a framework for bringing attendees closer to God on a path that will positively affect their personal and professional lives. The retreat aims at providing tangible ways to strengthen your career, your medical practices, and your family life.

As medical professionals you are leaders in society. As Catholics you have an opportunity and responsibility to exercise this leadership role not only in the medical profession, but also in the Church’s mission of evangelization.

This retreat has been specifically designed for Catholics in the medical field whose profession is unique in both its challenges and its opportunities. I hope you will personally attend and invite your Catholic colleagues to attend along with you. I urge you to register for the retreat today."

The retreat will be held at the Franciscan Renewal Center: September 29-October 1, 2017. To register for the retreat, please email strong>call@diocesephoenix.org to ask for an application and flyer.

The retreat will be given by Fr. Ignatius Mazanowski, PhD, Chaplain of Catholic Physician's Guild. He will be joined by another Franciscan priest. Fr. Ignatius is a Franciscan Friar of the Holy Spirit and has extensive experience in retreat ministry. Last summer he successfully defended his dissertation in Rome on Mercy, Forgiveness, and Healing to attain his Doctorate in Moral Theology from the Pontifical University of Santa Croce.
