Blue Mass to Honor First Responders
Our Lady of Light Catholic Community will host a Blue Mass to show the community’s gratitude for and support of local Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, and First Responders. All community members, First Responders, their families, and friends are invited to attend.
A Blue Mass is celebrated in the Catholic Church for those employed in the public safety field. The color blue relates to the blue uniforms predominately used by these services. The mass honors those who have fallen in the line of duty and those currently serving, and gives the community an opportunity to show gratitude for those who serve so courageously, as well as their families, who risk so much so others can live safely. The first Blue Mass was held in Washington, DC in 1934 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.
The mass will feature static displays of apparatus from Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Lee County Emergency Medical Services, San Carlos Park Fire District and other local fire departments, as well as the presentation of colors by the Public Safety Honor Guard. Light refreshments will follow the mass in the Parish Center. Join us tomorrow evening at 6:30.
