2018 Blue Mass and Breakfast
On Sunday, September 30, the Most Reverend Peter A. Libasci, Bishop of Manchester, invited people of all faith traditions to join him for the celebration of the Blue Mass at Saint Joseph Cathedral in Manchester. The Blue Mass is celebrated to pay tribute to and thank members of law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical services providers and their families. The Blue Mass also provides an opportunity for emergency responders and their families to gather together for worship and to ask for the Lord’s blessing and guidance in their important work. The 2018 Blue Mass was followed by a breakfast reception in the Cathedral Church Hall.
