Thank you to all that participated in our 9/11 Blue Mass to honor our First Responders.
The Blue Mass is hosted to honor the work of public safety personnel including law enforcement officials, firefighters, and emergency medical services personnel. The term “Blue Mass” is a reference to the color of the uniforms worn by many in these professions, and dates back to 1934. Particularly in the wake of events of September 11, 2001, the Blue Mass is an occasion to recognize the particular sacrifice of police, firefighters, and EMS personnel, and to remember those who have given their lives in service to their communities. On this 16th Anniversary of 9/11, we join the community in prayer for First Responders, past and present.
