Catholic Response to COVID-19
Update from the Archdiocese of Toronto

The decision to close our parish churches on March 24, 2020, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic was a very difficult one and we recognize the tremendous spiritual sacrifice of the faithful during this time. We also want to do all that we can to minimize the potential spread of Covid-19 in our community.

We know that you have questions and are anxious to return to your local parish. This update will let you know where we are at present and what we’ve been doing to prepare for the days ahead.

Thank you for your continued patience. We join in collective prayer, anticipating the day that we may all be together once again.

DEATH: REVEREND MASSEY LOMBARDI

Reverend Massey Lombardi died on Friday, May 22, 2020. Father Lombardi was 80 years old and in his 46th year of the priesthood. He was ordained to the priesthood on May 4, 1974.

Father Lombardi was Director of the Office of Social Action for the Archdiocese of Toronto, Chaplain to St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School in Maple and Pastor of St. Wilfrid’s Parish for 18 years (1997-2015) North York.

With the generosity of St. Wilfrid's Parishioners, friends and family, he had also funded some major projects in Lugazi, Uganda through Fr. Emmanuel Walakira- and the project was called "Holy Cow".

He was responsible for the creation of the Toronto Peace Garden at Nathan Phillips Square. Father Lombardi retired in 2015 and was in residence at Houses of Providence.

Funeral will be held at a later date.

From the Archdiocese of Toronto: Catholic Response to COVID-19

We pray that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during this time of uncertainty.

We would like to share with you a reflection from Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of Toronto, related to the pandemic, sacramental restrictions and planning for a return to sacramental life.

In the communication, His Eminence references a number of working groups that have been planning for the days and weeks ahead as we all look forward to when our churches will be open for worship. Both the Archdiocese of Toronto and your local parish will keep you informed as we prepare to re-open our churches, at a time when it is safe to do so. You can visit your local parish website or stay updated online at: www.archtoronto.org/covid19.

Please take a moment to view the letter from Cardinal Collins here.

Thank you for your continued patience. We join in collective prayer, anticipating the day that we may all be together once again.
