The 21st Annual Mass and Celebration of Law Enforcement will be held at 10:30 a.m. April 13, the Thursday of Easter Week, in St. Robert Bellarmine Co-Cathedral, 61 Georgia Rd., Freehold. Men and women of all faiths are invited to attend this annual celebration for which Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., will be the principal celebrant and homilist.

The event, also known as the Blue Mass, has been held in the Diocese to thank God for the sacrifice and service to the communities given by police officers and law enforcement agents at every level. 

The Blue Mass had not been held since 2019 because of COVID-19 precautions. This year’s Mass will include the reading of names of all law enforcement personnel in the Diocese who have lost their lives in the line of duty in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Those who are unable to attend the Blue Mass in Trenton are invited to watch via Livestream, which will be made available on the diocesan YouTube channel.
