Fire alarm

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Hi. If a fire drill or the fire alarm goes off, not knowing if there is a real fire or not, what should happen while daily Mass is occurring? One of my colleagues tried to evacuate them because we didn’t know if there was a real fire or not, some left, some refused to leave, including the presider. Thoughts?


A:  I’d get out of there.

We actually had a tornado warning during the Easter Vigil one year. We all evacuated the building and picked up as best we could in the cafeteria. No tornado rose up, thank God. But Jesus did.
