In the event of a snow emergency, Archbishop Lori reminds Catholics in the Archdiocese of Baltimore that Church law excuses them from fulfilling the Sunday obligation to attend Mass due to a grave cause, such as unsafe travel due to severe weather conditions.

Those who cannot safely attend Mass are encouraged to listen to the Sunday radio Mass on WQLL-AM 1370 at 9:00 am or watch the TV Mass on the Eternal Word Television Network. Check or for listings.

Radio Mass
9:00 am – WQLL 1370 AM and WCBM 680 AM
6:00 pm – WCBM 680 AM (rebroadcast)

Following each airing of the Radio Mass is a locally-produced Catholic radio program, Catholic Baltimore, which will air interviews and information relevant for Catholics in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
