The Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago would like to cordially invite all lawyers, judges, and law professionals to the 86th Annual Votive Red Mass of the Holy Spirit, traditionally known as the Red Mass.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.
