The government has implemented that all attendees at funerals must always wear a mask.
Masks are required at all churches and cemeteries. Those in attendance for services are required to bring their masks to the church and cemetery or you will not be permitted to attend the service.
As some of the restrictions are being lifted the Bereavement Authority of Ontario has posted their guidelines of what we are able to do. https://thebao.ca/bao_attendanceguidance_june15_2020/
We can have public visitations with a maximum of 50 people in attendance per visitation room
We can have funerals taking place at the church which allows for up to 100 to 150 people to be in attendance in the Vaughan area (once maximum capacity has been reached no exceptions will be made to allow for more friends to enter)
We can have only 10 people in attendance at the cemetery.
We are encouraging all friends to come to the funeral home during the visitation periods if you are comfortable and meet us at the church for the funeral Mass on the funeral day.
We are asking for only the most immediate family members to join us at the funeral home on the funeral day and at the cemetery only. Due to the restrictions a reception in honour of Giovanni will be held at a later date.
We encourage all family and friends to leave a message on the memory wall online.
We continue to pray for all families affected during this most difficult time.
