Blue Mass Honors First Responders In Pittsfield

PITTSFIELD >> Those dedicated to spiritual healing honored the police, fire and emergency medical technicians devoted to protecting the public's physical well being on Sunday evening.

Area priests, lead by Monsignor Michael Shershanovich, pastor of St. Joseph Church, gathered at the North Street house of worship to conduct a Blue Mass.
