Weekend Masses will move back outside to the Open Air Pieta Chapel beginning Saturday, May 13th...plenty of room for everyone!
Month of May Rosary...will be said at 10:40 a.m. every day before the 11:00 a.m. Mass during the month of May.
The following is the official policy of the Diocese of Toledo:
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.
Here at the Shrine considering our location we need to go a step further on challenging weather days.
When there is a Level 2 Snow Emergency in Sandusky, Seneca and/or Huron Counties the State discourages any unnecessary travel. While Mass is very important event we also do not want anyone to get hurt.
Under a Level 2 or Level 3 Snow Emergencies Mass will NOT be publicly offered at the Shrine and the Gift Shop will also be closed. On those days, the Lord will make a special effort to hear your prayers at home.
We hope this won't be necessary but we feel this is the best and safest policy for all.
