The Red Mass is a religious ceremony open to the public. The term “red mass” is named after the color of the clothing worn by celebrants and judges attending the King’s Bench in Westminster, England. In keeping with tradition, deep red clothes are still worn every year at Red Mass.

Brunch tickets cost $ 50 each. For tickets, call Attorney Tom Murray at (508) 754-4900.
