WORSHIPPERS HAVE BEEN informed that there is “no obligation” for them to turn up to Mass this morning due to the difficult weather conditions.

A statement released by the Archdiocese of Dublin informed potential Mass-goers that “where weather conditions make it unsafe or where road conditions make it dangerous, imprudent or difficult, there is no obligation to attend Sunday Mass this weekend”.

It added: “When people are unable to attend Mass it is recommended that they view or listen to the Mass on-line, on television or radio or that they spend a time in prayer as individuals or as a family.”

The statement also explained that where serious conditions of access or safety arise regarding a church building, the Parish Priest or rector may decide that a church remain closed even on Sunday.
