Inclement Weather Statement

The severe weather that we have experienced this winter has given rise to many questions regarding the obligation to attend Mass when driving and walking are dangerous.

Bishop Malooly has sent us the following statement.

“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 and/or road conditions are unsafe or make travel dangerous or difficult, or, if 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. Some time should be given to private or family prayer in order to sanctify the Lord’s Day.

Prayers should be offered for those affected by the storm.”
