The Catholic Physicians Guild of Phoenix
a Chartered Guild of the Catholic Medical Association


 

About Us
 
As Catholic Physicians of the Diocese of Phoenix, we come together as a Chartered Guild of the Catholic Medical Association in order to grow in our understanding of the moral and ethical principles of our Catholic Faith.

 
We seek to engage and live our call to holiness, to grow in our love of God, and to support one another as faithful Catholics. We desire also to assist the Bishop and the whole Catholic Community with leadership, especially with the particular knowledge, skill, and experience we have as Catholic health professional.
All activities of the Guild are conducted in accordance with and in submission to the teaching authority of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.
