Bound by Faith … Committed to Justice

The Catholic Lawyers’ Guild of the Archdiocese of Boston, Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of Catholic legal professionals in the greater Boston area. With attorneys, judges, paralegals, legal assistants and law students, the diverse membership of the Guild offers a unique opportunity for fellow Catholics in the community to come together as brothers and sisters in Christ, united by our common bond of faith and commitment to justice.

Our primary mission is to sponsor or facilitate spiritual, social, educational and charitable opportunities and events that celebrate the richness of our faith and the nobility of our profession. We seek to uphold the highest standards and best traditions of the legal profession by promoting events and pro bono service to the community we serve, and in doing so, to raise the public’s perception and the reality of the important contribution of the legal profession to our society.

Members periodically meet for fellowship, professional development and sharing our life experiences. At various events through the year, speakers share how spirituality relates to their daily lives, providing members the opportunity to learn how to engage that same sense of spirituality into their businesses and practice.

The Guild’s signature event is an annual Red Mass, where we ask for divine guidance in the professional representation of clients and in our proper role in the administration of justice in the courts and in public office. The Red Mass, held each Fall at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross or at the Seaport Shrine of Our Lady of Good Voyage, is attended by many involved in the legal profession, including judges, lawyers and court officials of all faiths, at which we ask God to bless, strengthen and enlighten all servants of the law and all people of faith so that, in cooperation and mutual trust, we may effectively seek justice for all.

The Guild invites Catholic lawyers, judges, paralegals, legal assistants, law students, public servants, public officials, and individuals interested in the relationship between the Catholic faith and the law to join us in the pursuit of promoting and achieving the very best that our profession can offer for us and the community we serve.
