Each fall, St. Mary’s University School of Law welcomes the start of the new judicial year with a local adaptation of the centuries-old tradition of Red Mass.
This year, the San Antonio legal community will gather for Red Mass on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022, to continue upholding the centuries-old tradition that marks the fall start of the judicial year.
The tradition was revived in San Antonio 70 years ago by the
St. Mary’s University School of Law and the Catholic Lawyers Guild of San Antonio, who organize the annual event with representatives from San Antonio legal organizations, the judiciary and the State Legislature.
The School of Law is grateful to the Archdiocese of San Antonio to be welcomed each year to the San Fernando Cathedral for this beautiful and solemn event.
