Catholic Relief Services executive to speak at Red Mass

HONOLULU (AP) - The executive vice president of Catholic Relief Services' U.S. operations will be the guest speaker at an annual Mass celebrated the day before the opening of the Hawaii state Legislature.

The Honolulu diocese says Joan Rosenhauer will explain how the American Catholic community is helping those struggling with tragedies around the world.

Tuesday's Mass is the diocese's annual public prayer seeking wisdom and guidance for Hawaii's public servants. Known as the "Red Mass," it has been a Hawaii tradition since 1955. It's named for the color of the vestments used for the Mass.

More than 1,000 state, county, religious and military leaders have been invited to attend.
