The University of Notre Dame is holding a Blue Mass to pray for police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and their families.

The Rev. John Jenkins, the university president, will celebrate the Mass at 5:15 p.m. Thursday at the school's Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The public and police and fire departments are invited.

The Blue Mass is named for the predominant color of uniforms worn by police and firefighters. The Mass was first celebrated at Notre Dame for the victims of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
