Adoration Chapel Bad Weather Policy

During bad or severe weather, the Mother of Mercy Adoration Chapel will be closed as follows:

In case of inclement weather the pastor will make the decision to close the chapel. A notice will be posted on the front page of the website: www.stgertrude.org indicating exactly when the chapel will close and when it will reopen. Also the information will be recorded on the Eucharistic Adoration Phone number: 513-561-5954, ext 2136. Finally, a notice will be sent out through the on-line scheduling system "VSP" to all adorers if the chapel needs to be closed. So please check these various areas of communication before you venture out in the storm.

During closed hours of inclement weather, the Blessed Sacrament will be placed in the tabernacle. Registered perpetual adorers do not have to attend their hour during this period. During closed hours of inclement weather the chapel will remain open for quiet prayer, but we encourage people not to venture out during storms. During the public hours of 6am-9pm the door will remain unlocked. During the night hours of 9pm-6pm the door will be locked as usual. You will need the code to enter the chapel during the night hours.

If you have any questions, please call 561-5954 ext. 2136.
