In the event that Alpena schools are closed due to weather
(snow, ice, and even COLD ) . . .
When Alpena schools are closed due to adverse weather, the parish office will be closed that morning and all morning parish activities are cancelled. However, the assumption will be that the noon Mass, and afternoon and evening activities will take place, but COULD be cancelled if adverse or dangerous conditions continue.
In that event, notices will be on the parish website, app, phone, Facebook page and on WATZ radio (99.3 FM). If you are not sure whether Mass or another parish activity will occur that day, information will be available on those sources by 11:00 am. In any case, please use sensible judgement whether it is safe for you to travel.
**One notable exception: if a weather related school closure occurs on a Friday of the All Saints School 50/50 raffle drawing (the first Friday of the month), the 4:00 pm drawing will be postponed to the following Tuesday regardless of whether or not other afternoon parish activities resume that Friday.
So be sure to keep an ear to your radio and an eye
on the TV to be aware of any snow days
