Letter from Our Pastor Fr. Eugene
Good evening everyone,
I hope you are all doing well at the end of what has been a very tense and eventful week for all of us.
As many of you may have heard already, following recommendations by the Chief Medical Office of the Province of Ontario, Cardinal Thomas Collins has asked that Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Toronto cancel public Mass for the faithful this weekend. Cardinal Collins has granted the faithful dispensation from their Sunday obligation for this weekend and any other which may be required. Churches will remain open for private prayer and Eucharistic Adoration as well as for Daily Mass during the week. The Archdiocese will assess this decision for next weekend and any other that is required in consultation with health officials.
I am asking all ministry leaders please circulate this information to all of your respective members at your earliest convenience as this is a time sensitive matter.
As this is a very fluid situation, we will continue to update you in the coming days and weeks as more information becomes available. I encourage all of you to continue to pray for all of those who have been impacted by COVID-19 and to continue to follow recommendations given to us by public health officials.

Please feel free to contact me should you require any further clarification.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
