Bishop Donald Kettler will celebrate a special “Blue Mass” in thanksgiving for the service of EMTs, first responders, and other emergency medical personnel. All are welcome to join the bishop in prayer for and blessing of emergency medical personnel from around the Diocese of Saint Cloud. Holy Mass will be celebrated at the Cathedral of Saint Mary in Saint Cloud, MN at 7pm Thursday, 21 September 2017 – the feast of Saint Matthew, apostle and martyr. A reception will follow. No RSVP necessary.
Bishop Kettler said “our police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel are modern-day Good Samaritans who make personal sacrifices every day to protect and care for others. This Mass is an opportunity to thank them and their families, and to pray for their safety and well-being.”
