Moore receives service award at Red Mass
On Oct. 1, Bishop Robert J. Cunningham celebrated the annual Red Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, a tradition since the 13th century that honors those in the legal and justice profession and in law enforcement.
“You have a noble vocation,” stated Bishop Cunningham to the many gathered at the Cathedral. “Your efforts touch lives of countless men and women and effectively proclaim human dignity.”
Debbie Moore, a parishioner of Corpus Christi Parish and a senior law clerk for Senior Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., U.S. District Court for the Northern District of N.Y., received an award for her outstanding service to the legal community from the Syracuse Catholic Lawyers Guild. Bishop Cunningham presented the award to Moore before the conclusion of Mass.
