The 11th annual Blue Mass was celebrated Oct. 18 at Our Lady of Hope Parish in Blackwood. The Mass honors all law enforcement officers, fire personnel and EMU personnel who work at the municipal, county, state and federal levels that have jurisdiction in Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. At least a dozen police departments and other groups were represented. At left, principal celebrant Msgr. Roger E.
