Parish and School Weather Policy




Level 3 Snow Emergency


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 region, 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 a spiritual Communion. When Mass is cancelled, all 

other diocesan, parish, or school events in that geographic region are 

also cancelled.
