The Third Annual CMA Youth Conference

Catholics in Healthcare:
Building a Culture of Life

Saturday 29th September at 13:30–17:30

St Aloysius Roman Catholic Church
20 Phoenix Road, NW1 1 London, United Kingdom

The Catholic Medical Association invites all young (18-35yrs) Catholics in healthcare (doctors, nurses, medical students, nursing students, pharmacists etc.) to the Third Annual CMA Youth Conference.

Speakers and a panel will explore the meaning of the culture of life in relation to healthcare and how to live by that culture in our professional and personal lives.

There will be a small fayre to showcase the work of lay and religious organisations related to healthcare.

Registration is from 1:30pm for a 2:00pm start.

What is the Culture of Life? – Fr Stephen Boyle

An overview of the prophetic teaching of Humanae Vitae. How does the culture of the modern secular world reject the Church and its message of the Good News? How does that culture affect bioethical issues such as abortion, euthansia, the family etc.?

Bringing the Culture of Life to young Catholics in Healthcare - Dr Adrian Treloar

What is it to be a Catholic in healthcare? How do we live out our lives according to this culture of life? What sort of clinical situations might you be faced with which oppose the culture of life?

Panel Discussion with Catholic clinicians, nurse and a midwife

A chance to explore some of these clincal scenarios further and how to repsond to them in a polite and professional manner.

Work as Prayer – Fr Gerard Mary OFM Conv.

Fr Gerard will talk about the importance of a strong prayer life for young Catholics in healthcare, and then briefly about the role of Walsingham in the re-dedication of England to Mary and the work of the New Evangelisation.

Tea and coffee will be provided during the break.

Entry is by donation. Please be generous in order to enable the continued work of the Catholic Medical Association's New Evangelisation (CMANE). The CMANE supports young Catholics in healthcare. Suggested donation is £5, payable at the door.
