26th Annual Red Mass

September 28, 2017




The Red Mass is a Mass of the Holy Spirit celebrated annually at the opening of the judicial year.  All are welcome.  This Thirteenth Century European custom marked the opening of the parliament and received its name from the red color of the vestments worn by the celebrant and the scarlet robes worn by the Lord High Justices.  Today, many cities around the United States hold the Red Mass annually in celebration of the legal profession.

Speaker: Jennifer Carr Allmon, Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops (TCCB)


Reception immediately following at the Austin Club, 110 East 9th St.
