Blue Mass at St. Charles honors ‘first responders’

the Inland Register

(From the October 18, 2012 edition of the Inland Register)

On Sept. 11, St. Charles Parish and School celebrated a Blue Mass in recognition of the tragic anniversary of 9/11. Firefighters, police officers, EMS workers, sheriff personnel, and Homeland Security workers were invited to the school Mass at 9 a.m. Among those present was Frank Straub, who had been selected Spokane’s new Chief of Police the night before. At the conclusion of the Mass invited guests were called forward to receive a blessing and certificate. (IR photo courtesy of Stacy Pelkie, Soul Perspective Photography)
