EUGENE — A Blue Mass will be celebrated at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, at St. Jude Church here. The liturgy is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council 17442.

The Mass pays tribute to local first responders, including firefighters, police, medics and others. It is called “blue” in references to the blue uniforms often worn by those in law enforcement.
