ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The Diocese of St. Cloud will be holding a special Blue Mass to honor first responders and emergency personnel.

Bishop Donald Kettler will preside over the service and says “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.”

During the service, the Bishop will bless emergency vehicles.

The special mass will be held on Thursday, September 21st at 7 p.m. at St. Mary's Cathedral in St. Cloud.

A reception will follow. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The Church's last Blue Mass in honor of police and first responders was held in May of 2016.
