NORWALK - People of all faiths flocked to St. Philips Church in Norwalk today for the annual Blue Mass to honor police, firefighters and rescue workers.

The event today, held by the Bridgeport Diocese, dedicated the service to the men and women in uniform who responded to the tragedy in Newtown nine months ago.

Father Michael Boccaccio says what the first responders dealt with in Newtown makes them worthy of the honor. He says those who have found a home in emergency services keep the faith as they keep watch on the world.
