The Red Mass has a long history. It is thought to have originated in the Cathedral of Paris in 1245 to invoke the guidance of the Holy Spirit on the judges of the Ecclesiastical Courts. The name "Red Mass" refers to the red robes worn by the judges and the red vestments worn by the priests, since red is the liturgical color associated with the Holy Spirit. They are still worn today. The Red Mass was introduced into the United States in 1928 at St. Andrew's Church in the shadows of the federal, state and municipal court buildings near Foley Square in New York City.
