Catholic Lawyers Restoring The Culture

Welcome to The Catholic Bar Association

"There is no doubt that, for those among you who are called to live the Christian vocation of your Baptism, this is a privileged and dynamic field of world evangelization. For all, even those of you who are not Christian, there is a need in every case for the assistance of God, who is the source of all reason and justice.”

- Pope Francis to Lawyers, Vatican City October 23, 2014


2021 Annual Conference

Catholic Lawyers: Navigating Turbulent Waters

OCTOBER 21-23, 2021




The 2021 General Assembly and Annual Conference at the Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Florida was a great success! There were over 100 attendees and the lineup of speakers was first-rate!  A link to the informative Meeting Brochure is found HERE.

A rosary was recited before each day's meeting and Mass was celebrated by Father Ken Riley before the first day's meeting.  The opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration was provided in the school's chapel at the meeting site.

The social events at the meeting were great opportunities for fellowship and networking.


The Red Mass was celebrated by the Most Reverend Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, Florida.  Coverage of the Red Mass by the diocesan newspaper is found HERE.


The Red Mass Banquet was held at the Kensington Golf & Country Club with The Most Reverend  Felipe J. Estévez, Bishop of the Diocese of St. Augustine, presenting the St. John Fisher Lecture on the subject, "Cuba- Is There a Future of Hope?"

SAVE THE DATE!  Next year's General Assembly and Annual Conference will be held October 14-15, 2022 in Dallas, Texas.

 We hope to see you there!

Our History, Vision and Purpose


The Catholic Bar Association (CBA) is a lay movement within the Church to build community, nationally and internationally, among Catholic members of the legal profession.  The underlying vision for this organization was an inspiration felt by many of the founding members.  Led by the Holy Spirit, members of different Catholic lawyers’ organizations, universities and dioceses from across the United States have formed the CBA.
