Bad Weather/Church Closings — If it’s slippery and dangerous, or if there’s an abundance of snow, USE COMMON SENSE. Don’t try to come to Mass. If the Fairfax County Schools system delays or cancels school due to weather, there will be no 8:30 a.m. Mass. Fairfax County Schools, for congruous purposes, is simply an efficient means to follow. If the U.S. Government shuts down because of bad weather, we’ll do our best to maintain the Noon schedule because snow removal work should be well underway by that time – but there are no guarantees.

For the safety of those shoveling and plowing the snow, gates will be closed and the entrances will be blocked by cones. (Please do not drive around the cones.)

You can receive email notices — from Fairfax County Schools by signing up via this link: (or use the internet search engine: “Fairfax County Schools closings”). U.S. Government closings because of the weather, of course, are pretty big deals and news is easily accessible from television reports.


We, the people of God at St. Michael Catholic Church, live the Gospel message by fostering a spirit of worship, a commitment to service, and a continuous love of learning.
