Historic St. Patrick honors firefighters with special Mass

A special Mass of Thanksgiving to honor and thank all firefighters will be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Historic Church of St. Patrick, 130 Avondale Ave.

The church was struck by lightning 27 years ago tomorrow and firefighters put out a blaze that severely damaged the church s steeple, roof, and organ. A new steeple was placed atop the church on Thursday.

The Mass is for all firefighters who put their lives on the line every day to help people in need, and especially for firefighters who fought the Sept. 9, 1980, fire at St. Pat s Historic. The Mass will also feature the firefighter s last call in honor of those lost in the line of duty.
