Bad Weather Mass Policy
“Canon Law (1247)
 states that on Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are obliged to participate in the Mass. However, the law does not expect the impossible nor can the fulfillment of the obligation according to the norm of the law be burdensome or dangerous. There is NO OBLIGATION to attend Mass if weather or road conditions are unsafe or make travel dangerous or is one is unable to get out of their driveway or parked space. Those persons who are unable to attend Mass under such conditions may view the celebration of Mass on television, depending on local television schedules. Sometime should be given to private or family prayer to sanctify the Lord’s Day.
