Our History:

St. Raphael’s Guild became a chartered guild of the Catholic Medical Association in August 2008.  Its founding officers were Drs. Timothy Egan, President, Timothy Kleinschmidt, Vice President, and Michael Maurice Messer, Secretary/Treasurer.  
 
St. Raphael’s subsequently experienced significant growth in membership and reached nearly 30 members making it one of the largest chartered guilds in the United States.  We then became a tax-exempt organization - 501 (c) (3) - in May of 2009.
 
In 2013, St. Raphael’s Guild initiated a new page in its history by beginning a healthcare professional’s formation program with the goal of helping them advance in their spiritual and professional lives by emulating Christ, the Physician. 

September/October 2013:  Fr. Peter Muhich assumed the role of our chaplin. 
February 11, 2014: St. Raphael's Guild launched its website - www.duluthcathmed.org
May 7, 2014: 
St. Raphael's Guild moved its meeting site from St. Raphael's Church in Canosia, MN to The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary, in Duluth. The move was made to provide an improved meeting space for our growing needs, as well as to follow our chaplin - Fr. Muhich, pastor at the Cathedral.
