Cardinal’s Message on COVID-19 – March 24, 2020
Tuesday, March 24, 2020

​March 24, 2020 – 10:00 a.m.

Dear Father,

In order to assist in limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we have already cancelled the public celebration of the sacraments, including the Eucharist. In view of the increased restrictions on public activity, I am now asking you to close your church and any chapel, even for individual prayer, effective immediately.

As of 11:59 p.m. Tuesday evening, parish offices should be closed to the public. Please make every effort to arrange for remote working arrangements for either the parish secretary or a parishioner who has the capacity to help organize and communicate with the faithful and to reach out to those isolated.

In Christ,

Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto
