The Catholic Lawyers Guild of Chicago would like to invite all lawyers, judges, and law professionals to the 88th 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. We invite colleagues of all faiths, their families, friends and guests to join us.
Procession of Judges: The in-person component of our event will include the traditional procession of judges. We encourage any judge who wishes to participate to arrive with robes to Holy Name Cathedral at 5:00 p.m.
In-Person Reception: We are happy to come together in person once again to celebrate our honorees and gather as a legal community! There is a registration fee of $75 to attend the reception (which will be held at Loyola’s Schreiber Center, located at 16 E. Pearson St.). We do encourage you to make a registration donation or sponsor the event, if you are able.
Parking: Complimentary parking will be available in the Holy Name Cathedral parking garage located at 14 W. Superior Street, between Dearborn ad State Street, and is located below the tall tower of the new One Chicago Square complex. Superior is a one-way street going Eastbound, you will need to be coming from the West to enter the Parking Garage. You will enter on the two-way driveway on Superior and turn left to proceed down the ramp. Our entrance gate will be directly in front of you. Just pull a parking ticket and park in any non-reserved open space on Lower Level One (LL1) or Lower Level Two (LL2). There will be no need to validate your parking ticket. The parking gates will be open upon the conclusion of the Red Mass.
