SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist held their first White Mass on Tuesday to bless Catholic healthcare professionals.

The mass honored those who provide care, such as nurses and medical doctors.

“White Mass is the way the Catholic Church reaches out to all healthcare professionals to honor them and their profession, to support them in their mission and to guide them in their aspirations to help the poor and the needy,” said Director of Stewardship Development Joe Strong.

The church estimates over 100 people attended.
