The School of Law hosted its 99th consecutive Red Mass in September. Red Mass is an occasion for judges, lawyers, and officials of all faiths to pray together for guidance at the beginning of the new judicial term and join in the Renewal of the Lawyer’s Oath of Commitment.

The Oath is recited by all new lawyers in the State of Michigan as a mandatory part of swearing-in ceremonies. Renewal of the Oath is a voluntary means of reaffirming the pledge made at the onset of a lawyer’s career. This year’s Oath was led by Justice Brian K. Zahra (’87) of the Michigan Supreme Court. The celebrant of the Mass was Reverend Simon Hendry, S.J., Ph.D., a superior of the Jesuit Community and Director of the Catholic Studies Program at UDM.
