Red Mass

Sunday, March 11, 2018 | Green Bay

Red Mass is a a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages in Europe. Bishop David L. Ricken will celebrate this Mass of the Holy Spirit for all who work in the field of law and public service. All members of the legal community and public office holders, including judges, governmental officials, attorneys, legal staff, paralegals and law school faculty, are invited to attend. The Mass is a reminder of the importance of their vocations and asks God's guidance in administering their office or position with wisdom, justice, fortitude, compassion, and counsel.

Luncheon at the Riverside Ballroom will follow Mass. Justice Anne M. McKeig, Associate Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, will speak. Justice McKeig, a member of the White Earth Indian Tribe, is the first American Indian to serve on the Minnesota Supreme Court. She was raised on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation, graduating from the College of St. Catherine and Hamline University School of Law.

Justice McKeig worked in the Child Protection Division of the Hennepin County District Attorney's Office from 1992 until becoming a Circuit Court Judge in 2008. She was appointed to the Minnesota Supreme Court in September 2016. She will discuss her reflections as an American Indian, her faith and her rise from poverty to serving as the 94th Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court.

"We are blessed to have our communities supported by dedicated women and men
who serve in a wide variety of legal professions…. The Mass will give us
the opportunity to unite our prayers of thanksgiving and petition for these
individuals and especially to ask God's blessing upon them."
