Diocese addresses Mass attendance in preparation for storm

January 18, 2019

Due to the impending winter storm which is forecasted to be severe, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany has told parishes that they may cancel, delay, postpone, or reschedule Masses for Sunday, Jan. 20, if necessary.

In the event of a cancellation, Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger has dispensed the faithful from their Sunday obligation. 

Specific decisions about individual parishes and Mass schedules will be determined and communicated by the local leadership of those affected parishes. Those who cannot safely participate at Mass in person are encouraged to visit the diocesan website for links to Masses that are live-streamed and broadcast on television or radio: www.rcda.org/livemass
