Civil and Catholic law gather for Red Mass

B.C's legal professionals come together for spiritual guidance
Catholic Lawyers hope to uphold God's law
as good as Saint Thomas More
Donning the red vestments Archbishop J. Michael Millar, CSB is hoping the symbol of the tongues of fire will breathe truth into B.C's legal community. Lawyers, judges and other legal professionals are invited to join in B.C's first Red Mass Sept. 22 at 5:10p.m at Holy Rosary Cathedral.

Since it's inception in Paris in 1245, the Red Mass has brought together Catholic legal workers guiding towards the goals of faith and justice. One of the largest gatherings takes place every year in Washington, D.C. before the start of the U.S Supreme Court's annual term.

After the Mass there will be a reception and dinner with guest speaker Father Raymond Desouza at the Vancouver Club. Dinner starts at 6:30p.m.with tickets available for $130 and $1000 for a table of eight.

Holy Rosary Cathedral is located on the corner of Dunsmuir and Richards. The Vancouver Club is located at 915 W. Hastings Street.
