Red Mass in Sarasota Nov. 10
The Catholic Lawyers Guild of the Diocese of Venice invites you to the 14th Annual Red Mass at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022, St. Martha Parish, 200 N. Orange St., Sarasota. Bishop Frank J. Dewane will be principal celebrant. The Red Mass celebrates all who pursue justice in their daily lives as is the time-honored tradition dating back to the 13th century. Today, the tradition still stands as an invocation of God’s blessing upon the members of the bench, bar, legislature, law enforcement and governmental agencies, all protectors of and administrators of the law. We welcome all who participate in the administration of justice. We hope that you will be able to come to pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and to strongly encourage and support the involvement of the legal community in spreading the Word of God. Kindly RSVP to Deacon Paul Consbruck at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 941-966-6706.
