Join the Guild for our Advent Retreat

Bringing All We Are Into What We Do:
Spiritual Practices in our Work as Lawyers and in our Homes at Christmas

DATE & TIME:
Saturday, December 5, 2020
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

LOCATION:
Virtual Meeting
Zoom meeting details will be sent prior to event

As people of faith, we believe in the Holy Spirit and seek to become aware of its presence and cooperate with its invitations. We do this through being intentional about spiritual practices. At our Catholic Lawyers Guild retreat, we will explore how do this in our work as lawyers and in our homes during the Christmas season. In this way, we will open to the Holy Spirit in both our professional and personal lives.

Prayer

Providing opportunities for reflection and union with God has been a crucial part of the Guild’s life, accomplished through retreats, days of recollection, and the Red Mass.

Service

Some notable services provided by the Guild have been pro bono service to immigrants at the request of Cardinal Samuel Stritch in the 1960s and Cardinal Joseph Bernardin in 1970s , the hearings on sexual abuse conducted at the request of Cardinal Francis George in 2002, and our recent adoption of the Catholic Charities Legal Clinic as a service opportunity for our members.

Celebration

Annually we organize the Red Mass at Holy Name Cathedral, the Mass that has opened the Fall Term for courts since 1245 A.D. asking the Holy Spirit’s help for lawyers and judges. In tandem with the Red Mass, we celebrate with a reception with lawyers who have incarnated Christ in the world through their work.
