The Twelfth Annual Red Mass

5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16
Sacred Heart Chapel, Saint Benedict's Monastery

The judicial year in many jurisdictions around the world is traditionally opened with a Red Mass. The celebration of the Mass is designed to provide judges, lawyers, civic leaders and academics of all faiths the opportunity to reflect on the powers and responsibilities that are part of their offices. Together, Red Mass participants ask God to grant the virtues and gifts necessary for the proper and just administration of their duties. The Red Mass names comes from the red vestments and garments that early legal participants wore on this occasion.

Mass Celebrant, Homilist:
Abbot John Klassen, OSB

Music by CSB Women’s Choir

The reception following the Mass, at the
Gorecki Center, will include the presentation
of the Fidelis Apparitor Award to Minnesota
Supreme Court Justice, Wilhelmina Wright.

RSVP for the reception by Nov. 8.

$30 per person
