Blue Mass in Shreveport

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT La. -

The church doors in Shreveport were open for people to pray for those who keep us safe. They call it the Blue Mass Service and the 12th annual service was held at Saint Mary of the Pines Catholic Church in Shreveport. The mass was held to honor law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency personnel for their work in keeping the community safe. It was open to all who wish to express their appreciation and support to the men and women who sacrifice so much to serve the people of our region. Bishop Michael Duca, the Bishop of Shreveport says this is a very special service. "Well it means everything because they are the ones that really up hold the law and they also the ones that provide order in which we can thrive and prosper," Bishop Duca said. Along with honoring these critical personnel, the Blue Mass allows people to pay special remembrance to all who have fallen in the line of duty.
