Annual Red Mass


Most Reverend Gerald F. Kicanas will celebrate the Annual Red Mass on Tuesday, October 17 at 5:30 p.m. at Saints Peter and Paul Church, (Campbell and Lee, across from UMC). The annual tradition of holding a Mass for judges, attorneys, law school professors, and others working in the legal profession, dates to the opening of parliament in 13th century England. During the Mass, we pray for guidance from the Holy Spirit for all who seek justice, and we focus on the God-given power and responsibility of all those working in the legal profession. The event is celebrated in conjunction with the St. Thomas More Society of Southern Arizona and the Catholic Foundation. In recent years, we have recognized someone from the local legal profession and law enforcement to receive the St. Thomas More Society recognition. This year, Patrick McNamara a parishioner at Saints Peter and Paul parish will receive the award for the legal profession. Deacon Ernest "Ernie" Trujillo, a Regional Director overseeing five of the ten state-operated prisons in Arizona and permanent deacon for the Diocese of Tucson at Assumption of the Virgin Mary Parish, Florence, AZ will receive the award for the law enforcement community. Each year the Society awards a scholarship in honor of the memory of the Honorable John M. Roll. All are welcome!
