By Kavitha Cardoza

The Archdiocese of Washington says dangerous travel conditions caused by bad weather is a legitimate excuse from fulfilling the Sunday obligation to attend Mass.

The Archdiocese said this was only the second time in 10 years that such an advisory had been issued. The Archdiocese of Washington includes 140 parishes and almost 600,000 Catholics in Washington and five Maryland counties.

Those who cannot safely attend Mass are encouraged to watch Mass on television.
