Blue Mass Celebrates Labor of Public Safety Personnel

 

Very Reverend Richard Walsh, Diocesan Administrator, invites you to the Blue Mass, celebrating the labor of public safety personnel, on Saturday, September 11 at 9:00 a.m. at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, 526 N. Park Avenue in Winter Park.

With the commemoration of September 11, as well as the extraordinary work during disasters, it is appropriate to honor the “men and women in blue”.  During this celebration, we honor not only those dressed in blue – we honor those whose uniforms come in all shades – law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency personnel.  They are the first responders – that thin blue line – that make our neighborhoods communities and not jungles.  All are invited to attend.

Bagpipers will process with other public safety officials into the church.  The Flag of the United States of America will be proudly displayed between two Winter Park Fire trucks on Park Avenue in front of St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church before the beginning of Mass.
