Blue Mass

  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 11th, 2001, the Blue Mass is a way to recognize the sacrifice of police, firefighters, and EMS personnel, and to remember those who have given their lives in service to their communities. The Knights of Columbus has taken an active role in sponsoring Blue Masses in the communities in which it serves, to join with the community in expressing appreciation to these dedicated professionals for all their selfless work. The following are scenes from a Blue Mass held at St. Isaac Jogues Church.
