Dear Parishioners and FRIENDS.
I come to you with this EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION.
As you see in the WEB PAGE of the Cardinal of Toronto, all CHURCH OPERATIONS are stopped.
–  This means that ALL MASSES (Weekend and weekdays) are cancelled, beginning WEDNESDAY MORNING, March 18, 2020.
–  FUNERALS can only be celebrated with immediate family AT THE GRAVE SITE.
– WEDDINGS with no mass and ONLY WITH IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS. (I personally suggest to postpone them at a later date, since even travel is affected and restaurants cannot accommodate more than 50 people. If couples would like to have their marriage blessed, they can come and talk about it at the office; they can have the celebration later on in the year).
–  THE PRIESTS will be available for emergencies, always keeping in mind the SOCIAL DISTANCING both for private confessions or communions.                   SUGGESTIONS:            
WE at our parish will be UNITED IN PRAYER every three hours, beginning 12:00 midnight; THEN 3 -6 -9 -12noon. THEN 3 – 6 -9 at night. If you can join from your house, you know that we priests in church and many other faithful parishioners at home are praying with you. 
THE ROSARY will be said at 12:00midnight, 6am and 6pm. The Divine Mercy Chaplet will be recited at 3am and 3pm.
We Priests will be offering a PRIVATE MASS for ALL OUR PARISHIONERS every day.
WE ARE IN THIS ALL TOGETHER. WE TYRUST OUR LORD. At mass this morning we requested  our Blessed Mother to place herself at the door of all the nomes of our parishioners and their families and not allow the Virus of death to enter into our homes, like the people of Israel the night of Passover.
We will keep in touch.
