The Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago would like to cordially invite all lawyers, judges, and law professionals to the 85th Annual Votive Red Mass of the Holy Spirit, traditionally known as the Red Mass.
This year the Red Mass will be held at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, with a procession of judges and lawyers starting the service down the aisle of Holy Name Cathedral. Very Rev. Greg Sakowicz, Pastor and Rector of Holy Name Cathedral, will be celebrating the Mass. If you are interested in joining the procession, please plan on arriving by 5:00 p.m. A reception will follow just a few short blocks away at Loyola University’s Water Tower Campus, Kasbeer Hall. Appetizers and beverages will be served.
The Red Mass has been celebrated annually in churches throughout the world since the twelfth century. It brings together members of the community from all faith traditions to pray for all those responsible for the administration of justice. For almost ninety years, the Catholic Lawyers Guild together with the Archdiocese of Chicago has sponsored the Red Mass in Chicago. It is one of the largest gatherings of Guild members, their families, friends, and guests. We welcome all those who are involved in our legal system in any way, along with their families and friends. Please consider joining us for the beautiful event!
Parking: Due to construction at the Cathedral, parking is unavailable for this event. Public transportation and ride sharing is encouraged.
