Judges depart Red Mass

Several hundred members of Sydney's legal community attended the 78th annual Red Mass, led by Wollongong bishop Peter Ingham.

Supreme Court justices and judges and magistrates from the district and local courts wore traditional robes as they led Tuesday morning's procession into St Mary's Cathedral in central Sydney. Judges attend the Mass, which signifies the commencement of the law term, to seek divine guidence in the legal profession.

Bishop Peter Ingham reminded the Judges about locking up the mentally ill in prison and that they should not be dishing out double punishment to them.

Jails Fail Mentally Ill
