Second Annual Blue Mass

Please join us as we celebrate our Second Annual Blue Mass on Wednesday, August 22 at 6pm, where we want to honor our Public Safety officials and First Responders and thank them for their service. In the United States, the Blue Mass tradition began in 1934, when Father Thomas Dade of the Archdiocese of Baltimore formed the Catholic Police and Fireman’s Society, and celebrated the first Blue Mass for police officers and firemen that year. After the Mass there will be a reception in the Parish Hall. Everyone is invited!
