Red Mass Marks the New Court Term Last week, on October 10, the Creighton University School of Law and the Omaha Bar Association marked the opening of the fall term of the courts — from the U.S. Supreme Court on down — with the traditional Red Mass at St. John’s Church on Creighton’s campus. The service, a centuries-old tradition which is open to people of all faiths, prays for divine guidance for lawyers in the representation of their clients and the proper administration of justice in the courts and public offices. The presider and homilist was Archbishop George Lucas of the Archdiocese of Omaha with members of the Creighton Jesuit Community concelebrating the Mass. A reception was held following the Mass.
