For Fort Worth, September 30, 2008:

2008 Red Mass: The Red Mass has been traditionally identified with the opening of the Sacred Roman Rota, the supreme judicial body of the Catholic Church. Today a Red Mass is celebrated in the fall in many cities of the US, with perhaps the most prominent being in Washington D.C. where it is attended by members of the Supreme Court, Congress, and the executive branch of our government.

All attorneys, judges and public officials, along with their spouses are cordially invited to attend the 2008 Red Mass at 6:00 p.m. on September 30 at St. Patrick Cathedral, 1206 Throckmorton Street in Fort Worth.

Bishop Kevin Vann will concelebrate this event. Parking will be available in the parish parking lot next to the Cathedral, on the parish lots between 12th & 13th Streets. There will be a reception at the Ft. Worth Convention Center immediately following Mass.
