The Church will be closed and all activities canceled if a LOCAL State of Emergency is declared by Dare County or the Town of Kitty Hawk that includes mandatory evacuations or restrictions or prohibitions on travel in Kitty Hawk. 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.

Since our new inclement weather policy governing closures and cancellations will now be tied to County and Municipality States of Emergency, we urge
all parishioners to sign up for County Alerts.

Dare County Emergency Management has the ability to send emergency alerts to residents, visitors and property owners via text, email, and over the phone. Registered users pick how time-sensitive messages are received and which devices, phone numbers and email addresses notifications are sent to. Examples of emergency notifications include but are not limited to: mandatory evacuation orders, reentry information, hurricane advisories and bulletins, emergencies disrupting vehicular/pedestrian traffic, and countywide post-disaster information.
Phone Numbers – Users can opt in to receive alerts sent as voice recordings over the phone and/or text.
Addresses – Alerts affecting specific areas of Dare County, may be sent based on location; including your home address, work address, and the addresses of any additional properties you own in Dare County, which will ensure you receive notification of situations that may impact those areas.
Weather Events – Select which alerts you would like to receive from NOAA & the National Weather Service.
