Storm Watch: Boston Archdiocese urges parishoners to “use good judgement” when traveling to Sunday Mass

 (AP)- Blizzard conditions and up to 3 feet of snow are forecast in the Boston area during the storm, which is expected to be at its worst late Friday and early Saturday.

The Boston Archdiocese issued a statement Friday in which it reminded Catholics to be prudent and heed travel advisories in their cities and towns. 

In the statement, the archdiocese expressed hope the storm will have passed and roads will be clear by Sunday. But it reminded Catholics that under church law, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass “does not apply when there is grave difficulty in fulfilling this obligation.”
