In light of the impending snowstorm with dangerous conditions that is expected to arrive over the weekend, Catholics of the Diocese of Providence are reminded to use prudence & extreme caution in deciding whether or not they are able to attend Sunday Mass. While the obligation to attend Holy Mass is always to be taken seriously, Catholics are not expected to attend Mass if the weather conditions are dangerous & extremely difficult. Personal safety should be a priority. If local conditions are dangerous, Catholics may legitimately choose to stay home, remain safe & spend more time in personal prayer & reflection in keeping with the spirit of the Lord's Day. God Bless.
