Red Mass 2019

  • The annual Red Mass and Dinner will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 29. at 6:15 p.m. at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, 1111 St. Joseph Parkway, Houston.

    Judges, attorneys, law students and professors, and other government officials are invited to attend.

    The Mass will be followed by dinner at the Cathedral Centre with Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit as guest speaker. Seating is limited.

    Everyone is encouraged to attend the Mass, even if they are unable to attend the dinner.

    The history of Red Mass goes back to the Middle Ages. Red vestments in the Catholic Church are worn to symbolize the Holy Spirit, for example, the tongues of fire which descended upon the Apostles at Pentecost. Red Mass is "red" because the judiciary is seeking guidance from the Holy Spirit for the carriage of justice and the responsibility of the legal profession.
