Distinguished Members of the FEAMC and FIAMC, On February 16, 1991, the founding assembly of the Croatian Catholic Medical Society was held at the Residence of the Society of Jesus in Zagreb. Since it is presently impossible for our many members to gather in celebration of this significant jubilee due to the epidemiological situation, the Executive Committee has decided to postpone the official commemoration until the autumn.
Nevertheless, in order to mark this anniversary symbolically, on February 16, 2021, at 4 p.m., in the Pater Ante Gabrić Auditorium of the Society of Jesus in Zagreb, where the founding assembly was held thirty years ago, our ecclesiastical assistants will conduct a Mass of Thanksgiving for the first thirty years of the Croatian Catholic Medical Society.
Principal Celebrant:Msgr. Valentin Pozaić, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Zagreb, First Ecclesiastical Assistant of the HKLD. Concelebrants:Prof. Ivan Bodrožić, Ecclesiastical Assistant of the HKLD, Prof. Friar Draženko Tomić, Ecclesiastical Assistant of the Branimir Richter Branch of the HKLD in Zagreb.
The other members of the CCMS will be able to follow the Mass online, which will be livestreamed via our website, www.hkld.hr With prayer for the intercession of Blessed Alojzije Stepinac, Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Luke on behalf of our society, we congratulate you on this anniversary! Greetings in Christ.
Rok Čivljak, President
Croatian Catholic Medical Society (HKLD)
