10th Annual White Mass

Event Details

Date & Time



The Mass has the designation“white” because of that color’s connection to our baptismal promises. It has now become a tradition that participants at the liturgy wear white, to symbolize the bonds of community we all share through this sacrament of initiation. In fact, the Catholic bishops in 2017 based their Sacramental Guidelines for Persons with Disabilities on this primary foundation: By reason of their baptism, all Catholics are equal in dignity in the sight of God and have the same divine calling. (#1)

Please join the Most Reverend Wilton D. Gregory, Archbishop of Washington as the Principal Celebrant on October 27th, 2019 at 11:30 am at Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle to celebrate the 10th Annual White Mass.
