Blue Mass will Pay Tribute to First Responders

October 4, 2017 (Omaha, NE) – A tradition that began over 80 years ago will continue tomorrow with the Blue Mass that honors police, medics, firefighters, and those who have died in the line of duty. Archbishop George Lucas will celebrate the 9:30 a.m. Mass at Ss. Peter & Paul Church.
“The Blue Mass is an opportunity to say thanks to God for the work of the first responders in our community, and to ask God’s blessing on them in that important and sometimes dangerous work,” said Archbishop Lucas.
After every Blue Mass, Archbishop Lucas blesses first responders and public safety equipment.
All Omaha metro area police and fire personnel, including families and friends, are invited to attend regardless of religious affiliation. Ss. Peter & Paul School students also will attend.
The Blue Mass dates back to 1934, when many first responders wore blue uniforms.
