Kansas City Catholic Medical Association -- Sts. Cosmas and Damian Guild

​The Kansas City guild of the Catholic Medical Association (CMA), under the patronage of the twin physician saints, Cosmas and Damian, helps busy practitioners balance the teachings of the Faith with the practice of Medicine.  CMA works closely with the local bishops to both follow their teaching and healing and comfort patients. Every medical professional is welcome to join and CMA events are open to everyone.

The Goals of the Catholic Medical Association are:

  • To uphold the principles of Catholic faith and morality as related to the science and practice of medicine.

  • To cooperate with local bishops in leading the Christian community, especially with the medical expertise particular to Catholic physicians to understand and apply Christ’s principles of faith and morality to modern medical science and practice.

  • To lead the Christian community in the work of communicating Catholic medical ethics to the medical profession and the wider community.

  • To uphold Catholic hospitals in the application of Catholic moral principles in medical practice.

  • To lend moral and spiritual support to students in the regional medical schools.

  • To enable Catholic physicians to know one another better and to work together with deeper mutual support and understanding.


First Saturdays for Physicians -- ​"First Saturdays" is a grass roots initiative to help reconnect area Catholic doctors with Christ and His church. Under the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit and through the intervention of Saints Cosmas and Damian, this collaboration of the School of Faith of the Archdiocese of KCK, the male branch of the Apostles of the Interior Life and the local guild of the Catholic Medical Association helps doctors reconnect by providing a combination of Mass, reconciliation, and a 30-45 minute catechesis led by the School of Faith Founder and theologian, Michael Scherschligt.

Fetal Anomalies & Special Diagnoses

Alexandra's House

Alexandra’s House is a local community based, all volunteer, peer-led perinatal hospice and infant care system for parents pregnant with babies with lethal or sub-lethal anomalies, for pregnancies that end unexpectedly at any point, from any cause, and for infants who die in the community, any cause.  Alexandra’s House does not interfere with or substitute for any existing medical, social, or hospice agencies’ services.  What it does is to help fill in the many gaps in care that do exist, as defined by those who have lived the experience of caring for a dying unborn or newborn baby. 

​The ideal time to consult Alexandra’s House is at the time of diagnosis or loss so parents are fully informed and to help alleviate some of the acute  anxiety and very common feelings of isolation and abandonment.  Alexandra’s House does not charge for its services nor does it accept contributions from people they serve.   

          Services include:
          -  bringing meaning to suffering 
          -  assistance in grief resolution 
          -  parent-parent partnering 
          -  birth planning 
          -  funeral planning 
          -  long-term support 
          -  one to one and group meetings 
          -  pre-natal and post-natal housing, if required 

If a baby survives and is dismissed from the hospital, the family and baby can stay here for the duration of their life.  Professional nursing services are  provided through a licensed hospice agency. 

Please prayerfully consider visiting www.alexandrashouse.com or emailing care@alexandrashouse.com to learn more about Alexandra’s House and how you can provide much needed healing to your fellow-parishioners, family and friends who are suffering.  In the meantime, please review Supporting Families Who Receive a Prenatal Diagnosis, an on-line resource available from USCCB.

Population Research Institute

The Population Research Institute is a non-profit research group whose goals are to expose the myth of overpopulation, to expose human rights abuses committed in population control programs, and to make the case that people are the world’s greatest resource.  Their growing, global network of pro-life groups spans over 30 countries and has contributed to.

  • Debunking the myth of overpopulation, which cheapens human life and paves the way for abusive population control programs

  • Exposing the relentless promotion of abortion, abortifacient contraception, and chemical and surgical sterilization in misleadingly labeled “population stabilization,” “family planning,” and “reproductive health” programs.

  • Defunding these programs by exposing the coercion, deception, and racism inherent in them.

  • Emphasizing that people are the most valuable resource on the planet, the one resource we cannot do without.

  • Promoting pro-natal and pro-family attitudes, laws, and policies worldwide.

  • Encouraging programs to help the poor become agents of their own development.

Thomas More Society

The Thomas More Society is a not-for-profit, national public interest law firm dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty. Based in Chicago, the Thomas More Society defends and fosters support for these causes by providing high quality pro bono legal services from local trial courts all the way to the United States Supreme Court.

The Thomas More Society was forged out of necessity in 1997 in order to continue defending the historic N.O.W. v. Scheidler case. This nationwide class action lawsuit brought by the National Organization for Women against prominent pro-life leader Joseph Scheidler (among others) was a transparent attempt to gag pro-life activism at abortion clinics nationally through the blatant misuse of federal antitrust and racketeering statutes. Having decisively prevailed in N.O.W. v. Scheidler in the U.S. Supreme Court, 8-1 (2003) and 8-0 (2006), the Thomas More Society continues to litigate cutting-edge cases including:

  • Protecting the First Amendment rights of those who pray and counsel outside our nation’s

  • abortion facilities

  • Defending laws that protect human life from conception to natural death

  • Ensuring the free expression of religion in the public square

  • Restoring respect for marriage as the sacred union of one man and one woman

The Thomas More Society has assisted thousands of clients including some of the nation’s most renowned pro-life and religious leaders: David Bereit and 40 Days for Life, Lila Rose and Live Action, Joe, Ann and Eric Scheidler and Pro-Life Action League, Troy Newman and Operation Rescue, Former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, Catholic Bishops, Catholic Charities, Dioceses, Religious Orders, the Notre Dame Protestors (“ND88”) and many more.

Pope Paul VI Institute

The Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction was founded in 1985 to answer the call for reproductive health care that fully respects life. The challenges in Pope Paul VI's 1968 letter Humanae Vitae prompted Thomas W. Hilgers, MD, to begin scientific research in the applications of natural fertility regulation and to open the Pope Paul VI Institute in order to build a culture of life in women's health care throughout the world. The Institute has developed a new approach to women's health care that embodies the best principles of medicine and offers superior treatments to women and challenges mainstream medicine, which relies on contraception, in vitro fertilization, and abortion.

Its healthy, moral solutions to issues in women's health care impacts the lives of thousands of women, couples, doctors, medical students, priests, and babies on national and international levels. The Institute's developments — Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System and NaProTechnology — are building a culture of life in women's health care through its current programs and services.

Today, the Institute is located in Omaha, Nebraska, and is a 14,000-square-foot international research, education, medical, and service center. With a staff of 22 full- and part-time professionals and a mere annual budget of $1 million, the Institute is dedicated to continuing its founding mission to build a culture of life in women's health care throughout the world.
