Inclement Weather

With the best interest and safety of all in mind, please adhere to the following closing
procedures:

  • When inclement weather conditions cause the Prince William County Schools to
    close, both School AND Church Office and all scheduled activities will be
    cancelled, except for scheduled masses.  Daily masses will be live streamed.
  • If schools are opening two hours late, the parish office will also open two hours
    late (or as the County decides). Masses will be celebrated at their scheduled time.
  • If these weather conditions exist on a Non-School date, parish events will be
    canceled for that day, except for the Mass schedule (weddings and funerals will
    be handled on a per-case basis to be decided by the pastor in light of any
    hazardous conditions). We will do our best to notify a primary Radio Station
    (probably WTOP).

We will always do our best to be open and celebrating Sunday Masses—unless the Bishop of
Arlington announces a dispensation from the Obligation to attend—which will almost always be
announced on major Radio stations.
We advise parishioners to observe weather conditions and to NOT place themselves at risk of
falls anywhere on the church grounds. Please exercise prudence and caution when deciding
whether or not to attend a mass. There is no replacement for sound judgment.
