Taken from the Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto posted on the Archdiocese of Toronto’s website:
My dear faithful of the Archdiocese of Toronto,
I wish to provide you with a further update on our response as a Christian community to the COVID-19 situation which is evolving rapidly. Today, the Premier of Ontario has declared a state of emergency.
Once again in the history of our archdiocese we are in the midst of an epidemic. I am deeply grateful for the priests, deacons and lay pastoral workers of the archdiocese who have acted in this emergency with such loving pastoral care. We are called to ensure that this continues even more in the time ahead. For example, I encourage all pastors to organize the members of their parish to assist those who are isolated and vulnerable, especially the elderly, while always following the directions of the health authorities.
For the duration of this health emergency, I decree that the following be implemented in all parishes, missions and chaplaincies throughout the Archdiocese of Toronto:
Funerals – During this emergency, there will be no vigils or wake services. The Rite of Committal will take place with the immediate family at the cemetery. There will be no funeral Mass at this time, but we encourage the celebration of a funeral Mass at a later date when it is possible.
We will review our emergency provisions regularly in accord with the requirements of the public health officials and we will provide updates at:
While it is a painful moment in the life of the Church to take these extreme measures, we pray that they will aid in combating the pandemic that has affected so many in our own community and around the world.
Once again, we pray for those suffering and for those who are caring for the sick. We are facing many trials during our Lenten journey this year. We take these to prayer, and look for opportunities to be the face of Jesus to all those whom we encounter. May God continue to bless you.
In Christ,
Thomas Cardinal Collins
Archbishop of Toronto

Dear Rosemary, Joe, Alessia, Christian and Sofia,
Our sincere condolences at the loss of your beloved mom, mother-in-law and nonna. This painful time is undoubtedly more difficult in light of our current circumstances, where we need our faith the most and yet its limits are being tested, daily. Our prayer for your family is that during this time of loss and grief, may your deep faith and trust in God comfort you, to bring you peace and hope, as though we face many trials here on earth, the Lord now holds your dear mother safely in the palm of His hand, in heaven.
With love, friendship and sympathy,
