St Mary the Virgin 28 Crown Lane BR7 5PL

Both meetings start with Mass at 7.30pm. We will have some pizzas and refreshments etc for you. 

Dear Catholic Doctors, Nurses and all other Healthcare Workers,

Matthew Chapter 6 describes Our Blessed Lord on his journeys through Palestine haling the sick. In verse 56 Matthew writes “…and as many as touched him were made whole”. Mark 6, 55-56.
That verse has profound implications for what we hope and seek to do with all those whom we care for and treat. It informs our vocation.

The Kent Branch of the Catholic Medical Association will be holding two Lenten meetings this year. One in Canterbury and the other in Chislehurst. We very much hope that you will be able to come to one of them. The meetings will include a talk by Dr Adrian Treloar which explores the vocation of healthcare workers as seen through the lens the Gospels and Christ’s healing ministry

Do please come along if you can. Admission is free and you will be able to find out more about the work of the Catholic Medical Association as well. The Catholic Medical Association exists to support healthcare professionals in their daily work, as well as priests, lay visitors etc.

If you want to find out more online, please have a look at the Catholic Medical Association of England and Wales face-book page and also visit our websites. As well as being in print, the Catholic Medical Quarterly is also on line at

Yours sincerely

Dr Adrian Treloar and Wendy Schiess
