Blue Mass


Location: Basilica of the Sacred Heart

The Blue Mass honors police officers, emergency medical technicians and firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The Blue Mass is named for the predominant color of uniforms worn by police officers and firefighters nationwide. It was first celebrated at Notre Dame for the victims of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and is continued for them and for the police officers, firefighters and rescue workers who have died while serving and protecting others. The Blue Mass is open to the general public.
