Murphy Quinlan to be honored with award

MANCHESTER – The Most Reverend Peter A. Libasci, Bishop of Manchester, invites people of all faith traditions to join him for the celebration of the annual Red Mass, scheduled for 5:15 p.m. Oct. 24 at Saint Joseph Cathedral in Manchester.

Each year, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Manchester invites women and men associated with the study and administration of justice in New Hampshire to the Red Mass. This annual event is an opportunity for the judicial, legal, and legislative communities to gather with those who administer law in the Church for an evening of prayer for strength and guidance in their work.

Immediately after the Red Mass, the Catholic Lawyers Guild of New Hampshire will host a reception in Bishop Bradley Hall, located on the lower level of the Cathedral. During the reception, the Guild will honor Attorney Diane Murphy Quinlan with the 2019 Saint Thomas More Award. This award is presented by the Guild to a lawyer or judge who is a practicing Catholic and who embodies the spirit of Saint Thomas More in his or her courage, dedication, integrity, civility, and compassion toward others. There is no charge for the reception, but those planning to attend the reception are asked to RSVP at 2019-RedMass.eventbrite.com.
