Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, Sacramento
Reception and Dinner to follow at the Sutter Club

The Red Mass is the traditional gathering of members of the legal profession and elected and appointed officials to invoke the aid of the spirit of God in their deliberations for the year to come.

Attorneys, judges, elected and appointed officials and all those working in the legal system or involved in the process of government in the five-county Sacramento region are invited to attend the Mass.

Following the Red Mass, a social hour and dinner event is held to present the St. Thomas More Award. Sponsorships are available for the dinner.

The annual award honors a member of the legal profession within the diocese who has shown integrity in the practice of law, leadership in the community, and faithfulness to gospel values in his or her personal and professional life. The 2022 St. Thomas More Award will be presented to Hon. Steven M. Basha, Yolo Superior Court Judge (ret.).
