Some priests will walk over from the rectory and hold services for whoever braves the weather and others are very cognizant of icy roads and walkways and will cancel services if things look too dangerous. What are your thoughts on this? Is the priest responsible for his congregation's safety knowing that some elderly people will get on the roads "hell or high water" if they know there is going to be a Sunday Divine Liturgy? Is it his duty to hold services over and above any inclement conditions that might be happening outside?
Your thoughts, please.
