On learning travelers and others were seeking shelter during the sub-zero cold snap, the Rev. John P. Rosson has announced St. Mary’s “Our Lady of the Lake” Church will be open 24 hours a day for the rest of the winter.
“It is unconscionable to have a locked warm church when a human being is freezing to death at 1 am. in 10-below-zero weather,“ Father Rosson told his congregation during a recent mass.
A pew has been outfitted in case of such emergency.
