St. Raymond Policy for Weather Closings
In the event of Weather or Emergency closings, St. Raymond’s Parish will follow Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) decisions on closings and cancellations. This information is normally available on radio (e.g., WTOP) and TV, and on the FCPS website (http://www.fcps.edu/news/emerg.shtml).
In short, if FCPS cancels “all activities,” so does the Parish: no parish office hours, no CCD classes, no prayer meetings, no privately scheduled meetings with a priest, no Knights of Columbus, no Soup Suppers, etc…., nothing.
There are only three exceptions to this policy:
1) regularly scheduled Masses will never be cancelled,
2) meetings of very small groups that receive the pastor’s personal permission, in which case members will be notified of the exception personally by their group leader, and
3) if the FCPS cancels all activities but keeps their administrative offices open, the parish offices will be open, to the extent possible and safe.
