A Red Mass, sponsored by the Guild of Catholic Lawyers of the Archdiocese of New York, is celebrated Feb. 13 at St. Agnes Church in Manhattan. Cardinal Dolan served as principal celebrant. The Red Mass invokes the guidance of the Holy Spirit on the deliberations of members of the courts and on the endeavors of legal and law enforcement professionals. After the liturgy, attorney John D. Murnane was honored at the Charles Carroll Award reception in St. Agnes’ auditorium.
