YPSILANTI -- Lawyers have a Red Mass, law enforcement officers
have a Blue Mass and health care workers have a Rose Mass. Educators also have
their own special service, the Green Mass.
Thanks to efforts by the Eastern Michigan University Catholic Faculty and Staff
Association, the second annual Green Mass for education personnel is Saturday,
Oct. 4, 4:30 p.m. at EMUs Holy Trinity Student Chapel, 511 W. Forest,
Ypsilanti. A reception will immediately follow. The service is open to the public.
Bishop Carl Mengeling, of the Archdiocese of Lansing, will be the principal
The Catholic community has a long tradition of hosting special Masses
for specific professions, said the Rev. Francis Mossholder, pastor of
Holy Trinity. Its important that we honor educators with their own
special Mass. Its a wonderful way to start the academic year.
Its also fitting that Bishop Mengeling will participate because
he has a strong commitment to educators and students, at both the university
and K-12 levels.
The Archdiocese of Lansing serves Catholic educators and students at Eastern
Michigan University, the University of Michigan and Michigan State University,
in addition to numerous other colleges and schools, said Mossholder.
