St. Mary’s Holds Blue Mass to Honor First Responders


On the feast of All Saints Day, St. Mary's held its second annual Blue Mass as a way to honor area First Responders.  Senior and head of the Lancer First Responders, Andrew Wargo coordinated the day's festivities, bringing in a group of about 30 brave men and women from local fire stations, police departments, and ambulance companies to attend the Mass at Our Lady of Pompeii Parish.

The Mass included an opening procession, special memorial for five fallen First Responders, and each company present received a special gift from St. Mary's.

It was a very touching afternoon for all of the students.
