Gold Mass for Scientists
November 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Society of Catholic Scientists sponsors Gold Masses for Scientists. This follows in the tradition of special Masses for members of particular professions. The oldest, the Red Mass for lawyers and lawmakers, was introduced in the 13th century. The first White Mass for health care professionals and Blue Mass for law enforcement were begun in the 1930s. By promoting Gold Masses for scientists around the world, SCS hopes to create spiritual fellowship at the local level.
Gold Masses are for Catholics who are or have been involved with science, including scientists, retired or former scientists, science teachers at any level, engineers, science graduate students and undergraduate science majors.
Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Matt Shireman at 7:00 p.m. November 15, the feast of St. Albert the Great, the patron saint of natural scientists. Refreshments will be served in the Faith Community Center following Mass.
