Attending Mass in Inclement Weather

Friday, January 22, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – With inclement weather predicted for the next couple of days, we wish to remind the faithful that Masses in archdiocesan parishes will be celebrated as regularly scheduled, however, dangerous travel/road conditions are legitimate excuses from fulfilling the Sunday Mass obligation. Those who cannot safely attend Mass in person are encouraged to watch the Sunday TV Mass, which airs at 10:30 a.m. on CW50. Click here for details and the exact channel in your area.
