The Denver Guild of the Catholic Medical Association was initiated in January 2008. It is a collaboration among Catholic Physicians, Dentists, Nurses, Clergy, Psychologists and other Health Care Professionals. The group came together to meet the increasing need for Health Care Providers to be educated in the teachings of the Catholic Church as well as for Catholic Clergy to become more aware of the needs of Catholic Health Care providers. A Guild of the National Catholic Medical Association was established in October 2008. The guidelines for members and associate members follow the recommendations of the National Association.

On October 17, 2008, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput ofm. Cap. celebrated the first annual White Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Father Timothy Hjelstrom, a priest of the Archdiocese of Denver, serves as its Assistant Chaplain.

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, with the exception of December and July. The meetings usually begin with a Holy Mass followed by an educational conference.

The Denver Catholic Medical Association upholds the teaching of the Catholic Church on all medical and ethical concerns. Each member practices this teaching and cherishes life from conception to natural death. In all levels of patient care, the members are attentive to the dignity of each human person.
