Inclement Weather Policy

No one should put themselves or their family at risk to attend Mass or fulfill a liturgical assignment. When travel is not safe, all are excused from the obligation to attend Mass.

Mass in the Church will not be cancelled for weather emergencies. Father will walk across the street from the rectory and celebrate Mass with whatever ministers and people attend. 

Events and gatherings at Our Lady of the Lake Parish will follow the morning snow closure and bad weather directions of the Lake Oswego School District. When the Lake Oswego schools are closed, all gatherings wil be canceled. This includes... our School, Parish Office, Faith Formation, Sacramental Preparation, Bible Study and Youth Ministry.

If there is a sudden change in the weather during the day, or there is a gathering that meets on a weekend, the pastoral staff or ministry leader of the respective gathering will make the decision just as soon as possible to ensure for safe travels. If you are not sure if a gathering is cancelled, please call the office (503-636-7687) for closure information.

Love God. Love People. Make Disciples of Jesus Christ.
