A group in Brooklyn and Queens is celebrating over a hundred years of serving Catholic police officers.

The Brooklyn-Queens Holy Name Society marked 101 years of service on Sunday with a procession, Mass and breakfast. 

Bishop Robert Brennan was there to honor officers who have earned the title “Cop of the Year.”

In his homage to the officers, the bishop recalled his own family ties to the force as he thanked them all for their sacrifices.

The society also gave out scholarships to three young women who will be attending Catholic high schools.
