2019 Homily Aids

2019 Homily Resources for Priests

Preaching the Healing Mission


The Catholic Health Association is pleased to offer a collection of homilies to help connect the healing mission of the Church with parishes and the communities we serve.

Written by prominent Catholic theologians and preachers, the homilies bring important issues about healing and care for the poor in the context of Gospel and Church teachings.

Catholic health ministries are dedicated to continuing the healing mission of Jesus by improving the well-being of the communities we serve. One out of every six patients in America is treated at a Catholic hospital each year.
