With the approach of hurricane Irene up the East Coast this weekend, I ask you to please remind any parishioners who have concerns, that they are not obliged to physically attend Sunday Mass if dangerous travel or road conditions exist.
Those who cannot safely attend Mass in person are encouraged to watch the Sunday TV Mass, which airs at 10:30 a.m on CW50.
Thank you for sharing this information with your parishioners.
With every good wish I am,
Most Reverend Barry C.Knestout
Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia
Archdiocese of Washington
