The Blue Mass, named for the predominant color in the uniforms, offers an opportunity to gather for Mass, asking God's blessing on those who serve the community. Chaplains of denominations that serve the first-responder communities will be participating in the Mass. Members of first-responder groups will participate in the Mass.
A bagpiper will provide solemn music. A reception will follow.
