Boston archdiocese tells faithful they can miss Sunday Mass

The Boston archdiocese today urged Catholics to heed safety warnings from public officials during the blizzard, and to only try to attend Mass Sunday if they can do so safely.

As part of its faith, the Roman Catholic church requires its followers to attend Mass on Sundays.

“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,’’ the archdiocese said in a statement.

“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,’’ the statement said.
