Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE MEANING OF
THE ROSE MASS.


Q. 1. What is a "Rose Mass?"

A. 1. Similar to the "Red Mass" (see # 1405) and the "White Mass" (See # 1406), the "Rose Mass" is an annual ceremony that ascknowledges a certain profession.

According to Wikipedia, "Since 1992 the John Carroll Society has sponsored a Rose Mass in the Archdiocese of Washington, to acknowledge medical, dental, nursing and allied workers and volunteers and the many health care institutions in the Archdiocese of Washington. It takes place annually on the fourth Sunday of Lent (“Laetare Sunday”), a Sunday when the vestments worn by the celebrant are rose-colored. The color rose was chosen as the rose has come to symbolize “life,” The Lansing Guild of the Catholic Medical Association hosts a Rose Mass in Ann Arbor, Michigan."
