On Sunday, September 11, 2016, the 10:30 A.M. Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Church will be dedicated to our First Responders, the members of the Fire Department, Police Department, and EMT Station. All First Responders are joyfully invited to this celebration wherein they will receive a special blessing for their dedication and the heroic efforts that they exhibit on a daily basis as they protect our beloved community and us its citizens.
After Mass, a procession to Westfield’s 9/11 Memorial will take place. At the Memorial 12 roses will be placed on each stone in honored memory of our Westfield citizens murdered that tragic day.
The Holy Trinity Parish Family invites all to join us afterwards at Holy Trinity’s Parish Center for a reception so that parishioners, friends, and family may have the opportunity to thank these civil servants in person for their sacrifices, bravery, and service to our community and to other communities when they are called.
Please note this invitation is not limited to Westfield. If you have a First Responder relative, neighbor, or friend, pass the invitation along! If you have questions, feel free to contact Jennifer Blasi at firstname.lastname@example.org or 908-232-2762.
