I am taking part in an out-of-town company function (at our company’s main office) the weekend of August 7-8. Because of the function’s schedule I am not sure that my wife and I will be able to get to Mass. Although there are evening Masses in our home town, we will not arrive home in time to attend any of these.
I contacted a company representative two weeks ago about Mass times and locations near the event and she said she would get back to me the next day. She didn’t.
My question is; can my wife and I attend this event in good conscience knowing that we may not get to Mass? (our window to get to Mass and back is from about 3pm to 6:30pm) I must add that, regretably, if I told my supervisor that I could not attend this function, only a little more than a week away, I would be in very, very deep trouble with him.
