Welcome Health Care Professionals,
I want to personally invite you and all Catholic health care providers in the Kansas City area to join us in membership and at our events (First Saturday's, the White Mass for the Healing Professions, and The fall Bioethics Dinner).
Since its inception, the national CMA has had a very strong commitment to "upholding the principles of the Faith and advancing the profession of medicine."
Our local mission is based on a personalized approach to spirituality, bioethics and discipleship. Please know that we are truly here to serve each of our area Catholic doctors and health care professionals. I hope you will join us during this very exciting time!

Prayer to Saints Cosmas and Damian
O Saints Cosmas and Damian, we honor and venerate you with all the humility and interior affection of our hearts.
We invoke you, glorious martyrs of Jesus Christ, who during life exercised the art of healing with admirable charity and sacrifice, curing the incurable and ministering to dangerous illnesses, not so much with the aid of medicine and skill, but by the invocation of the all-powerful Name of Jesus Christ.
Now that you are more powerful in heaven, graciously bestow your merciful glance upon us miserable and afflicted souls; and at the sight of the many ills which oppress us, the many spiritual and corporal diseases that surround us, hasten your help. Assist us, we pray, in every distress.
We do not ask for ourselves only, but for all our relatives, families, friends, and enemies, so that, restored to health of soul and body, we can give glory to God, and honor to you, our saintly protectors.
