Update: Toronto's suffragen diocese of London - public Masses cancelled.

March 14, 2020

Some Medical Officers of Health across the region are banning gatherings of 250 people or more. In light of this and the continuing concern for the health and safety of our parishioners, Bishop Fabbro announced today that all Masses shall be cancelled for this weekend. We will continue to monitor the situation and consult with public health officials to determine the course of action for next weekend and subsequent weekends.

For this weekend and as long as necessary, Bishop Fabbro grants the faithful dispensation from their Sunday obligation. Churches should remain open for private prayer and Eucharistic Adoration. Daily Mass will continue during the week. All other directions from Bishop Fabbro remain in effect at weekday Masses, with the additional direction to ensure proper “social distancing,” maintaining a 2 metre distance from others as a precaution.

Actually this is a blessing. I can’t think of anything more glorious than the cessation of the Novus Ordo. Shut them all down now and forever.

During the Black Plague era, nobody understood how disease was transmitted.

And did you even read the press releases? Churches are still open for Mass on weekdays and adoration on Sundays. Be thankful we have this.
