Blue Mass – to honor Police, Fire, EMS and their families

All are invited to attend a special Blue Mass in honor of our local Police, Fire, and EMS personnel.  The Mass will be held on Sunday September 14, 2014 at 10:00am at St. Peter Church.

The Most Reverend Jeffrey Monforton, Bishop of Steubenville, will be the celebrant. There will be reserved seating for safety personnel and their families. Bishop Monforton will give a general blessing to all safety personnel and will distribute a small gift of appreciation.  There will be a reception after the Mass in the church hall.

The Blue Mass has been celebrated for many years throughout the country as a way to ask for God’s blessing upon those who serve their communities, to acknowledge those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and to support those whose life is committed to serving others.

Please join us in praying for our local heroes and for God’s protection upon them as they continue to protect us and to serve our community.

All Police, Fire, and EMS personnel are invited to attend with their families – please arrive at the church by 9:45am “in uniform”.
