Inclement Weather Policy

snowflake_2744In the case of a serious snow or ice emergency during which is is dangerous to drive, the Church does not expect you to risk life and limb to get to Sunday Mass.  The law itself ceases to bind, and no announcement or dispensation is needed; you make the decision if you can safely attend Mass.

Please check the VDOT Website to help you assess road safety.
