This story is on the local news website (I have to check there cuz cable is out):
Oct 14, 2006 - Biship Edward Kmiec has lifted the Sunday Mass obligations for Cathoics living in parishes in the Diocese of Buffalo affected by the storm. A press release from the diocese says it's up to local pastors whether or not to conduct weekend services but that CVatholics in parishes without power are not obligated to attend Mass this weekend.
How generous of him.
Thank god I'm an atheist.
