"Blue Mass"
Saluting & Praying for Men and Women in Uniform


Fr. Matthew Wigton, Fr. Roman, Mr. Jerry Belanger and the students of St. Mary Cathedral School cordially invite you to attend our second annual “Blue Mass”, May 11th, 2022 at 8:30 am at St. Mary Cathedral, 606 N. Ohio Ave, Gaylord.

This Mass, during Police Appreciation Week, is being given in honor of all Active and Retired Law Enforcement Personnel to recognize their dedication and sacrifice to our local community. Law enforcement officers of all faith traditions are welcome! 

We come together on this day to pay respect to the fallen, to show our gratitude to those who endure danger for the sake of general wellness, and to pray that we are united in a fight to promote and preserve the common good. It is very important for our St. Mary Cathedral students to experience the celebration of Mass alongside our law enforcement officers. 

We ask that you pass this invitation on to any officers you know, active and retired.
