Elizabethtown parish hosts meal for law enforcement agencies

St. James Church in Elizabethtown, Ky., hosted an appreciation meal for local law enforcement agencies on July 28.

Nearly 100 parishioners attended the two-hour event with the purpose of “providing our local officers with words of encouragement,” a news release from the parish said.

The meal — organized by the Catholic Women of Saint James, a weekly Bible study group — featured barbecue, potato salad, slaw and desserts.

“Our world is troubled and more than ever, these fine men and women are putting their lives on the line for us every day and we just wanted to let them know we appreciate them and most importantly that we pray for them and their safety,” said Father Martin Linebach, pastor of St. James, in the release.

The parish will also host a “Blue Mass” on Sept. 11 to honor those who are employed in the public safety field including police officers, firefighters, first responders and EMS personnel.
