The Rev. Theodore Mens St. Mary Church pastor and Griffith Police Department chaplain, praised the officers during the Mass homily.

The Rev. Mens noted how responders tend to the problems of those they serve while sometimes dealing with personal issues, that must be put aside. “In my experiences with the police,” Mens said, “they always respect the dignity of the person; they are polite and simply point out the wrong someone has done. Emergency services providers are servants, protectors of the people – they have love for people as they try to keep them safe. We thank them and pray our society will continue to be served by our wonderful police and fire personnel.” The program is sponsored by the hospitals’ Mission and Spiritual Care Department.
