The Blue Mass is a Mass celebrated annually in the Catholic Church for those employed in the “public safety field” (i.e. police officers, firefighters, correctional officers, 911 operators and EMS personnel). The color blue relates to the blue-colored uniforms predominantly used by these services. The Mass is an opportunity for the community to show gratitude to the first responders and their families.
