Mass Cancelations During the Week Just a reminder that if Rootstown Schools are closed on a weekday because of bad weather, we will not have morning Mass, and all activities in the parish are canceled for the day, including choir practices. Also, if you are sick, PLEASE stay home and recover. It is not a sin to miss Mass if you are ill.
