Should lawyers make compromises for the Red Mass?

Protesters have called for lawyers and judges to not attend anymore and wanted lawyers to be aware of the message they are sending to the community by attending.

Child sexual abuse survivors’ advocate Chrissie Foster was one of the many people involved in the silent protest outside.

“Victims of clerical abuse need to know the judiciary is impartial,” Ms Foster said.

On the day, she was holding a sign that read “crime scene”, in reference to the venue, St Patrick’s Cathedral, where convicted Cardinal Pell abused two choirboys in 1996.
