Red Mass at St Patricks Cathedral

On 13th February, we were given the privilege of attending the inaugural Red Mass at St Patricks Cathedral, Parramatta. This mass is held at the beginning of the law year, as a way of offering thanksgiving for all those who serve the law. It is also an opportunity for members of the judiciary, as well as lawyers and public service officials to reaffirm a commitment to justice and faith. During this mass, red vestments are worn by the celebrants to signify the presence of the Holy Spirit.
