Weather Policy

Whenever Dover-Sherborn schools are canceled because of bad weather, daily Mass and Religious Education classes will be cancelled and the Parish Offices will be closed at St. Theresa and Most Precious Blood Churches.  On the weekends, cancellations will be announced on tv (channels 5 and 7) and there will be a recorded announcement on the parish phones.  In the event that there is no power or phone service, the parishes will be closed. Father Grimes urges everyone to stay off the roads during severe storms both for personal safety and to give town crews ample time to clear roads.
