Diocese of Gary Red Mass

Thursday, October 6 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM



Register for Red Mass here

The Red Mass tradition was initiated to bestow wisdom from the Holy Spirit upon Judges, Justices, and members of the legal profession at the beginning of each Court Season.  This tradition goes back to the thirteenth century.

The contemporary Red Mass brings members of the bar, government officials, the judiciary, the financial community, and all those who work together for justice in our world to reflect and seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

Bishop Robert J. McClory will preside. In the continuing education seminar following the Red Mass, guest speakers will be Attorney/ Former Banker Calvin Bellamy and Swartz Retson Senior Accountant/Former Banker Karin Clauson.  Together they will address the daunting topic of “Life, Death and Taxes.”  This event is open to everyone in the legal and finance community and is hosted by the Catholic Foundation for Northwest Indiana.
