Inclement Weather Policy
No event, including Mass, requires your attendance if you feel that weather conditions are dangerous. It is your right and responsibility to determine whether it is safe and/or wise to travel when road conditions may be hazardous. Those who choose not to travel because of unsafe conditions are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass.
However, in exceptional circumstances such as extreme weather conditions, power outage, or facility problems it may be necessary to cancel Mass. When mass is cancelled, to the extent possible, notice will be placed on local news outlets, the parish website, email, and recorded on the phone message.
If Bedford or Franklin County government offices are closed because of weather, the church office will be closed, daily Mass cancelled, and daytime activities cancelled. If Bedford or Franklin schools are closed, daily Mass is cancelled. If Bedford or Franklin schools are delayed, the church office will open at 10am. For evening events, the program leader will decide to cancel and will make reasonable efforts to inform participants in advance.
