St. Jane Frances Parish Office snow

“There is no such thing as bad weather. All weather is good because it is God’s.”

Saint Teresa of Avila

St. Jane Frances will follow the Anne Arundel County school system for closings

Our Inclement weather policy is as follows:

  • If Anne Arundel County Public Schools are closed, all day and evening activities at SJF are canceled, including daily Mass. The Parish Office also will be closed.
  • If Anne Arundel County Public Schools are opening 2 hours late, then daily Mass will be canceled and the Parish Offices will open 2 hours late as well.
  • If Anne Arundel County Public Schools close early and/or cancel all evening activities, then the Parish Office will close early and all evening events at the parish are canceled.
  • Saturday–If Anne Arundel County Public Schools cancel sports and/or county activities or are on a delayed schedule, there will not be a Saturday morning Mass or scheduled meetings.

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.
