A Mass honoring first responders was held Wednesday at Our Lady Queen of Peace Roman Catholic Church.

The Mass began at noon on December 9 at the church located in Lafayette.

First responders, including city police, sheriff's deputies, city marshals, firemen, and Acadian Ambulance Services, were all invited to attend.

Volunteers say they are thankful for the first responders' service to the community.

"All we wanted to do is show the first responders how much we appreciate what they do throughout the Lafayette community," explained Kenneth Belvin. "This is our little token of appreciation."
