The Garaventa Center will host Carlos T. Bea, a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the annual Red Mass on Monday, October 20, at 5 p.m., in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. The Red Mass is free and open to the public. Portland Archbishop Alexander K. Sample will be the principal celebrant for the Mass, with Bishop Peter L. Smith offering the Homily.
Following the Red Mass, a private dinner and law lecture will be held at 6 p.m. in the Executive Boardroom in Bauccio Commons. During the lecture, Bea will examine the use of religious art in public spaces. Tickets to the dinner and lecture are $55 per person.

The Red Mass is celebrated as a prayer for those entrusted with the law and for those who administer justice. The practice of the Red Mass dates back to the thirteenth century in Paris and London and has been celebrated in the United States since 1938.
