For future reference, please note our REVISED INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY:

In the event of inclement weather, Holy Redeemer by the Sea Parish will celebrate weekend Masses as scheduled at both locations.  On weekdays, we will follow any delays or closures announced by the Dare County School System.  Please check their website at for these announcements.  Any delay in opening means that the office and the Church will remain closed for the same duration announced by the school system. The start of morning Mass or Communion Service will be delayed by the same time period. Please do not venture onto Church property during the hours of the delay.  For any other activities that would have occurred during the closure, such as Scripture Study, Divine Mercy, Committee Meetings, etc., the leadership of that activity is to make and circulate the decision regarding delay or cancellation. We ask that, when deciding whether or not to travel to Mass or Church activities, you pay special attention to any emergency conditions or closures as announced by the State, the County and each Township.  Never put yourself at risk of accident or physical harm to come to Church in dangerous conditions, even if a delay or emergency has not been announced.  We have been assured by the Diocese of Raleigh that the Catholic faithful are not obligated to attend Mass when prevented by unsafe travel conditions.
