History of the Blue Mass

The Blue Mass dates back to 1934 in Washington, D.C. Rev. Thomas Dade from the Archdiocese of Baltimore (Maryland) initiated the Catholic Police and Firemen's Society while stationed at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Washington, D.C. About 1,100 police and firemen dressed in blue uniforms marched into St. Patrick's Catholic Church for the celebration of the first Blue Mass on September 29th, 1934.
