St. Jude Regional Catholic School hosts first Law Enforcement Mass
St. Jude Regional Catholic School in Rockville, Maryland hosted its first Law Enforcement Mass at the Shrine of St. Jude on Sept. 29 for those who work in public service. Students in kindergarten to eighth grade were in attendance. Father Raymond Fecteau, who serves as chaplain to the Montgomery County and Maryland State Police and to the United States Secret Service, celebrated the Mass.
In his homily, Father Fecteau discussed the sacrifices law enforcement officials, and their families, make. The first reading, which was from the Book of Daniel, was about angels that fulfill God’s will. “Angels are always doing God’s will and God’s work, and we need to know that even when we don’t see them, the police are there,” he said.
