The Erie County Bar Association cordially invites you to attend Red Mass celebrated by The Most Reverend Lawrence T. Persico, JCL, Bishop of Erie. All judges are invited to bring their robes and participate in the procession with the Bishop.
Red Mass is a historic tradition dating back to the thirteenth century when it officially opened the term of court for most European countries. It is called “Red Mass” for the color of the vestments worn by the celebrants, signifying the fire of the Holy Spirit as God’s blessing and guidance is evoked for judges, attorneys, government officials and all who seek justice regardless of religious affiliation.
Buffet Dinner immediately following the Red Mass will be at Gannon University’s Yehl Alumni Room.
Dinner Buffet: $39/person
Spouses and guests are welcome to attend.
After-dinner speaker: Fr. Nicholas J. Rouch, STD, Episcopal Vicar for Clergy - Diocese of Erie speaking on "Defending the Church Today: Insights from Saint John Henry Newman."
RSVP by Monday, October 11.
