The 9th annual Blue Mass honoring law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services personnel will be held on Sunday, September 15, at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Portland. The Mass is held annually on a weekend close to September 11 to thank and bless those who contribute to public health and safety. All those in public safety are invited to attend in uniform.
At 9:00 am the group will gather on Federal Street between the Portland Fire Department and the U.S. District Courthouse. At approximately 9:20 am, the procession will begin down Federal, Pearl and Congress Streets before continuing on Franklin Street, where public safety personnel will walk under a large American flag, held up by two Portland Fire Department ladder trucks, before entering the Cathedral.
