Red Mass 2019
Tuesday, October 29, 2019
Mass at 6:15 p.m.
Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart
1111 St. Joseph Parkway
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.
We ask that you forward this information to other interested lawyers. You do not have to be Catholic to attend this event. All are welcome who wish to receive blessings at the opening of the 2019 judicial year.
Members of the legal profession who have died this year will be recognized at the Mass. If you would like to have someone recognized, please e-mail Kelly Doonan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
