Dear Parishioners of St. John the Evangelist,
By order of Thomas Cardinal Collins, in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and so as to comply with the Government of Ontario's new regulations requiring that all non-essential workplaces be closed, the church and the parish office must remain closed until further notice.
These are indeed unprecedented trying times for everyone. People are experiencing many different feelings and emotions at this time and it pains me that the source of all consolation and peace who is our Lord in the Eucharist is no longer available to people.
Every day I am still offering a private Mass in the Church and I am also offering prayers for the parishioners. Please pray for those who are sick and for those who are caring for them. Please also keep me and the parish in your prayers. Be assured of my daily prayers for you.
Yours in Christ
