Red Mass Set for Oct. 18

The Knoxville Bar Association has announced that the 2013 Red Mass will be held Oct. 18 at 7 a.m. at the Immaculate Conception Church, 414 West Vine Ave., Knoxville 37902. This ancient tradition celebrates those who seek justice, particularly judges, attorneys, law school professors and government officials. Participants use the occasion to pray for the virtues needed for the right and just administration of their respective offices. Those attending in robes are asked to gather in the parish hall at 6:45 a.m. to process as a group into the church. A light breakfast will be served in the parish hall following the service. Community members of all faiths are invited to attend.
