The Mass was held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) chapel Tuesday Nov. 15.
Although many individuals believe faith and science contradict, the Society of Catholic Scientists state that it exists to "witness to the harmony between the vocation of scientist and the life of faith."The Gold Mass follows the tradition of Masses for other professions, such as White Masses for medical professionals, Red Masses for lawyers, and Blue Masses for police officer. It's name is derived from the hoods warn by graduates with a Ph.D. in science and St. Albert the Great's attempts at turning base metals into gold.
