Blue Mass – Sunday, September 11, 2011, 10:00 a.m. mass.

The Blue Mass began in Baltimore in 1934 to honor the men and women who protect our cities, counties and nation and to focus on the importance of the jobs of public safety officers and emergency personnel to the well-being of our communities.

We are extending a special invitation to all public safety officers and emergency personnel to this celebration in their honor. This invitation is also extended to any and all who wish to join in our celebration honoring public safety officers and emergency workers including firemen, first responders and law enforcement personnel in Central and the surrounding community currently serving the citizens of our country and remembering the fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice in doing so.  Jeff LeDuff, former Chief of Police for the City of Baton Rouge, will be our guest speaker sharing his personal reflections on honoring and remembering these elite groups of individuals who made sacrifices in the line of duty for their friends, family, and fellow countrymen.

Public Safety Agency personnel will be recognized during the mass, and a special tribute to those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty will take place with a Memorial Wreath Presentation and Presentation of Hats representing the different branches of public servants.

There will be a reception immediately following mass.
