At Gianna Molla Guild event, priest discusses moral courage in medicine

DE PERE — They came representing all areas of health care, from vascular surgery to hospital ministry. They come with conviction about the importance and sanctity of life and respect in all aspects of their role in medicine. And they left inspired.

Sunday’s events began with a white Mass at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral celebrated by the Bishop David Ricken. The day continued at St. Norbert College’s Bemis Center, where attendees heard a profound call-to-action message delivered by Fr. McTeigue.“Moral Courage in Medicine” was this year’s theme for the annual gathering of members of the St. Gianna Molla Guild of Northeast Wisconsin. Some members of the St. Gianna Molla Guild attended a retreat led by Jesuit Fr. Robert McTeigue on Saturday, Feb. 6.

The priest is currently director of campus ministry and adjunct professor of philosophy at Ave Maria University in Ave Maria, Fla. His areas of expertise include medical ethics, metaphysics and Ignatian spirituality.
