"First Saturdays" is a grass roots initiative to help reconnect area Catholic medical providers with Christ and His church. Under the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit and through the intervention of Saints Cosmas and Damian, this collaboration of the School of Faith, the male branch of the Apostles of the Interior Life and the local guild of the Catholic Medical Association helps doctors reconnect by providing a combination of Mass, reconciliation, and a 30-45 minute catechesis led by our School of Faith Founder and theologian, Michael Scherschligt.
The program will cover a broad range of medical and spiritual topics related to all of the contemporary issues facing Catholic doctors today. This will be an interactive format with Catholic catechesis and discussion. The goal is to light the fire of the Holy Spirit in area Catholic medical providers and to integrate Christ and His Church fully into their practice. Little by little, this will transform our families, our parishes, our practices and our hospitals. Organized and united in Truth, Catholic physicians with the authority of the CMA, the spirituality of the School of faith, and the full support of both dioceses, will transform the next 100 years of healthcare in our country, starting here in the heartland, here in Kansas City.
The annual cost for this 9-month cycle is $300 for doctors and $50 for all others. Premed, Med students and Residents are welcome free of charge! Spouses and children are encouraged to attend and are included as part of the registration fee. Go to schooloffaith.com or contact Cari Hillyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register.
