Appended below is the text of a special invitation from our Archbishop:
On Thursday, Jan. 24, the Archdiocese of Vancouver will be honoured with the presence of Canada’s newest Cardinal, His Eminence Thomas Collins of Toronto, who will celebrate our annual Red Mass at Holy Rosary Cathedral in Vancouver. The Red Mass is traditionally offered in honour of the legal profession, as a vocation in the service of justice and the common good.
Past, present and future members of the legal and judicial community will be in attendance, and I would like to extend a special welcome to members of the Knights of Columbus of all degrees to join us.
The Red Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 5:10 pm at Holy Rosary Cathedral in Vancouver (corner of Richards and Dunsmuir – map ). The choir at the Mass will be directed by Mr. Mark Donnelly.
Would you kindly do me the favour of extending this invitation to as many members of your fraternity as possible so that we can have a generous representation of the Knights of Columbus at this special celebration.
With thanks for all the support you give to the Church and to me personally, I remain
Most Reverend J. Michael Miller, CSB
Archbishop of Vancouver
