Today's D&C tells us that Bishop Matthew Clark will celebrate the annual Red Mass for the local legal community this Friday. The Mass will be at Sacred Heart Cathedral and begins at 12:15 pm, with a reception to follow.
In an email reader fatherdor writes,
Many Catholic lawyers in the Rochester community will not attend the Red Mass at Scared Heart Cathedral. The mass took place in Our Lady of Victory Church for many years and now Bishop Matthew Clark is forcing the mass to be held at the cathedral.
The majority of the lawyers and judges work in downtown Rochester, where our Lady of Victory is located. Many Catholics in the legal community opposed the cathedral renovation and feel that it looks like a concert hall instead of a church.
It will be interesting to see just how well attended the Red Mass will be.
