The Red Mass tradition dates from the 13th century and received its name from the red color of the vestments worn by the priest celebrants and the scarlet robes worn by the Lord High Justice.  In the United States today, an annual Red Mass is celebrated in most major metropolitan areas and is attended by judges, lawyers, public officials, law school faculty and law students. Members of the judiciary and legal profession of all faiths are welcome to attend the Red Mass.


Immediately following Holy Mass, for those that wish to attend, the optional Red Mass Dinner
