Prudential Judgment should always be used by event participants. No event, including Mass, requires your attendance if you feel that weather conditions are dangerous. It is your right and responsibility to determine whether it is safe and/or wise to travel when road conditions may be hazardous. Those who choose not to travel because of unsafe conditions are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass.
Mass will not ordinarily be canceled due to weather conditions, even when other school and or parish activities are canceled. However, in exceptional circumstances such as extreme weather conditions, power outage, or facility problems it may be necessary to cancel Mass. In such cases, information about cancellation will be made available via our website, Facebook and Twitter pages and parish office voicemail as soon as possible.
In the event of a forecast for snow, ice or flooding, a decision will be made approximately 24 hours (when possible) before the forecasted start and any campus cancellations will be posted on the Parish Facebook and Twitter pages, website and parish office voicemail.
