Blue Mass

Uniformed personnel from all branches of area public safety departments -police, fire, and emergency medical services- are invited to attend this Blue Mass along with the general public. A Blue Mass is celebrated in the Catholic Church for those employed in the public safety field. It is a special opportunity to honor and pray for public safety personnel. The color blue relates to the blue-colored uniforms often worn by those serving in that field. This September 29th date was chosen to coincide with Michaelmas, the feast of Saint Michael the Archangel, the patron saint of police officers.
