Weather Policy of the Diocese of Toledo

Whenever a county/city within the Diocese of Toledo is placed under a Level 3 Snow Emergency, during which all roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel, the Catholic Churches within that geographic region will cancel the scheduled Saturday Vigil, Sunday, or Holy Day Masses. Roman Catholics in that, therefore, are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass. IF Masses are cancelled, Catholics are encouraged to participate in Holy Mass via television, radio, or internet, making spiritual Communion. When Mass is cancelled, all other diocesan, parish, or school events in that geographic region are also cancelled.
