In a statement on the site, Bishop J Douglas Deshotel said:

"In view of continuing flash flood watches and warnings, pastors are to take appropriate precautions.   All are reminded that Church teaching (Catechism, 2183), and canon law (canon 1248, §2) excuse weekend Mass obligation in the case of grave inconvenience.  Weather conditions are different in various areas of the Diocese.  The faithful are advised to follow the directions and advice of local civil authorities.  A pastor may cancel or reduce the Mass schedule only in those places where grave conditions make that necessary.  When participation at Holy Mass is precluded, the faithful are to devote appropriate time to personal or family prayer, e.g. reflection on the Sunday readings, praying the rosary or mental prayer.  In any case, the Lord's Day remains holy.  Please pray for the safety of all affected by this major weather event."
