Dublin diocese recommends people view or listen to Sunday mass online this weekend

"There is no obligation to attend Sunday Mass this weekend."

Yep, the worst of the weather has passed us by, but with the impending flood and black ice warnings, leaving your house for any reason over the next few days is still going to be pretty treacherous.

That includes heading to Mass on Sunday, and the diocese are well aware of this.

They took to Twitter to make the announcement:

Here is the full statement via the Archdiocese of Dublin website:

Where weather conditions make it unsafe or where road conditions make it dangerous, imprudent or difficult, there is no obligation to attend Sunday Mass this weekend.

When people are unable to attend Mass it is recommended that they view or listen to the Mass on-line, on television or radio or that they spend a time in prayer as individuals or as a family.

Where serious conditions of access or safety arise regarding a Church building, the Parish Priest or Rector may decide that a Church may remain closed even on Sunday.

This should be communicated locally.

We're not entirely sure HOW to watch mass online, mind you. We did a quick Google search and the RTE player have some previous masses on their website, so that may be updated on Sunday with a new ... mass episode?

The only other issue is sourcing your own Holy Bread, and considering how difficult it is to get your hands on some regular bread in Ireland in the last few days, that is a problem you'll have to tackle on your own.
