The “Blue Mass” refers to the blue uniforms worn by so many public safety personnel and it dates back to 1934. It is meant to honor those who daily protect and serve us. At this Mass, we will remember law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency personnel who have fallen in the line of duty. We will also pray for safety and protection of all men and women serving to protect our community.
