Dedicated to Preserving & Renewing the American Spirit
Jensen Beach, Florida__

The Sixth Anniversary Memorial ?Blue Mass? and ceremonies to commemorate those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, will be celebrated by Most Rev. Gerald M. Barbarito, Bishop of Palm Beach, Tuesday September 11, 2007, at 10:30 a.m., at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church, 2555 N.E. Savanna Road, Jensen Beach, Florida.

The ?Blue Mass? ? a venerable tradition since 1934 in dioceses across the country, refers to the uniforms of so many public safety personnel. In honor of all those who daily protect and serve our nation, color guards from the Martin County Sheriff?s Department, Martin County Fire Rescue, and the Marine Corp. 4th Anglico will present and post colors prior to the Solemn Mass, hosted by St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus Council #8048.

The stirring memorial video, ?Angels Over America,? will be shown at 10:30 a.m., preceding the Mass. This uplifting tribute to 9/11 heroes and victims, written and produced by Carolyn Long, celebrates the courage and resilience that are the hallmarks of the American Spirit, while providing perspective, healing and hope.

?With other Americans and people around the world of good will, we remember and recognize those who have fallen in the line of duty and those who continue to give so generously and selflessly in defense of our country abroad and at home, be they fire fighters, police, military, or other first responders,? says Rev. James Molgano, Pastor of St. Martin de Porres. ?It?s commendable, honorable, and we as a people must continue to reach out to them and their families to show our appreciation.?

Rev. Molgano has invited all Martin County firefighters, police officers and EMTs, as well as federal, state and local officials to join the community at the Solemn High Blue Mass, ?as we continue to pray for peace, protection from evil, and for the men and women who give in service each day in defense of freedom.?
