More Cancellations from Holy Family Parish: No Masses at St. Joachim’s Church

The morning Masses at St. Joachim’s Church in Rockport are cancelled for tomorrow. Earlier, the Archdiocese sent out the following notice:

The Office of Divine Worship urges all Catholics to heed the travel advisories of their cities and towns, and to stay off the roads during the peak hours of the storm and plow operation. The faithful are encouraged to use good judgment when planning to travel to Mass. Hopefully the storm will have passed on Saturday, and roadways will be clear for travel on Sunday. In the event that roadways are not clear for travel on Sunday, the faithful are reminded that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass does not apply when there is grave difficulty in fulfilling this obligation. (See Code of Canon Law, Canon 1248 §2)

Cancellations at Holy Family Parish

Due to the weather conditions, there will be no 4PM Mass today at St. Ann’s Church in Gloucester.  The “Whole Parish Faith Formation” program that was scheduled for tomorrow morning, also at St. Ann’s, is also cancelled.  Right now, we can’t even get the doors of the rectory or the church open, although we can get from one to the other through a connecting bridge…

St. Joachim’s Church in Rockport is currently without power and covered in snow (like the rest of Rockport), so stay tuned for possible cancellations of the Masses tomorrow and the baptisms tomorrow afternoon.
