- recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the economic and social freedoms, protections, and rights of people everywhere upon whom the welfare of the human race depends
- seek actively to eliminate oppression of women, the poor, and people of color through restriction of economic and social rights specific to them
- seek justice and resist various sorts of oppressive assaults on economic and social justice, and who work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them
- look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their oppression, and seek protection and expansion of economic and social equality and rights in that vein
+-St. Thomas More Society
The St. Thomas More Society is dedicated to faith and community within the legal profession. The Society seeks to provide a Catholic voice on issues of relevance to judges, lawyers, public officials, and law students, and to promote an understanding of Church teaching. Membership in the Society is open to persons of all religions who are interested in exploring the rich teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.
The St. Thomas More Society sponsors the annual Red Mass and dinner, at which the Society presents the St. Thomas More Award to one who exemplifies the ideals of service and sacrifice in the pursuit of justice so conspicuously reflected in the life and death of St. Thomas More. The Red Mass continues a tradition begun by English barristers and judges in the 13th century of offering prayers to the Holy Spirit that all men and women in the legal profession, the judiciary and the public life be blessed with wisdom and understanding. Red vestments are traditionally worn at the Mass to commemorate the scarlet robes of the Lord High Justices.
