WILMINGTON, DE — The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington announced the annual Blue Mass to honor those who serve our community in the public safety sector (police, fire, EMS, and military), will be held on Friday, October 1, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Elizabeth Church, Cedar and Clayton Streets, in Wilmington.

Current and retired first responders, military, and their families are invited to attend.  The Mass will also be live-streamed on the Diocese of Wilmington’s YouTube Channel – YouTube.com/DioceseofWilm.

The Most Reverend William E. Koenig, newly-ordained Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, will preside at the Mass and will give the homily.

Although this will be a Catholic Mass, The Diocese states that those of other faiths are warmly welcomed to attend, either in-person or via YouTube, and pray for those who risk their lives for the sake of public safety. More information is available at cdow.org/bluemass.
