Inclement Weather Policy

When Frederick County public schools are closed, there will be NO morning Mass, the parish office will be closed, and there will be NO evening activities.
When Frederick County schools open 2 hours late, there will be NO morning Mass, the parish office will open at 10:00 am and evening activities will go on as scheduled.
When Frederick County schools close early and/or cancel evening activities, all evening activities and classes at St. Joseph will be cancelled.
If Frederick County Schools close early and/or cancel evening activities, all meetings and classes will be cancelled and the parish office will close early. 
 
Please note, The Knights of Columbus will make the decision to cancel events that they are hosting; they will not necessarily always follow the FCPS cancellations and closings.
 
Weekend Masses will very rarely be cancelled due to weather conditions.  The safety of our parishioners is of utmost importance and we strongly encourage everyone to exercise good judgement before setting out.  The obligation to attend Mass is commuted (relieved) if you cannot attend due to bad weather.  In the event that Mass is cancelled, all other activities and events scheduled for that day will be cancelled as well.
 
Every effort will be made to post cancellations on our website and Facebook page.
