Gesu will now follow Marquette University’s decision to close in the event of dangerous weather conditions, typically in the winter months. If Marquette is closed, Gesu is too. This means closure of the church and parish offices, including cancellation of Mass and confession schedule, plus all events and meetings. Please note this policy is typically applicable to weekdays.
Because of the Sunday and/or weekend Mass obligation, Gesu will try to remain open on weekends. However, if conditions prove to be too dangerous, Gesu will close. Notification of the parish’s closure will be communicated via local media outlets.
Safety is the top priority for the university and Gesu. This decision will help to ensure the safety of all involved – parishioners, visitors, priests and Marquette personnel who, during such weather events, are typically engaged in more essential duties than opening and closing the church.
