The 2018 Red Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, October 13, 2018, at 5 p.m. at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of the Diocese of San Francisco will be the Red Mass homilist, and Bishop Edward Burns will preside.
The Red Mass invokes the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the securing of justice for the coming year. We encourage attendance by all judiciary, attorneys, law faculty, and everyone interested in the rule of law.
Following the Red Mass there will be a dinner reception at the Dallas Petroleum Club across the street, which will include presentation of the St. Thomas More Award to the Honorable Amy Coney Barrett, Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Registration for the dinner is open to members of the judiciary, law faculty, STMS lawyer members, and invitees of the STMS.
