During the winter months when there is a heavy snowfall, the east and west doors of the Basilica will be the first to be cleared. These entrances are to be used by all attending daily Mass. The main entrances will be cleared only after the east and west have been cleared. A reminder: When the schools in the City are closed because of inclement weather, the Mass for that day will be cancelled. Of course sometimes it does snow on the weekend. If in doubt about whether or not Mass is being celebrated, please tune in to the local radio stations and/or call the parish office at 754-2170.
