Diocese addresses Mass attendance in poor weather

With a major winter storm expected to affect the Diocese of Rochester this coming weekend, diocesan officials have issued a statement regarding Sunday Mass attendance when weather conditions are poor.

“Diocese of Rochester parishioners are reminded that the obligation to attend Mass is not binding — one is excused — if weather and road conditions make it difficult or dangerous to travel to Mass,” the statement said, adding that the obligation also is waived if local officials have banned travel.
