Bishop Donald Kettler will offer a special “Blue Mass” to honor first responders and other emergency personnel at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, at St. Mary’s Cathedral, 25 Eighth Ave., South, in St. Cloud. There will be a blessing of law enforcement vehicles, firetrucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles after Mass. A reception will follow. All are welcome to attend.
“Jesus asks us to care for one another,” Bishop Kettler said. “Our police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel are modern-day Good Samaritans who make personal sacrifices every day to protect and care for others. This Mass is an opportunity to thank them and their families and to pray for their safety and well-being.”
