Letter from Bishop Fabbro, June 8, 2020

Dear friends of Holy Family Parish,

This past Monday, June 8, Premier Ford made an announcement about the introduction of Phase 2 as the Province of Ontario begins to return to normal in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He made specific reference to places of worship which could open to 30% capacity by this coming Friday, June 12. Later on that Monday evening, Bishop Fabbro issued an announcement about the opening of parishes throughout the Diocese of London. The Bishop was very clear in stating that there are a number of re-entry protocols which need to be in place before our churches will open safely to our dear parishioners. He has not given permission for any parishes in Southwest Ontario to open this coming weekend, June 13/14. His letter can be found below this brief note. Here at Holy Family, we have a re-entry committee already working on the details necessary to be in place before we welcome any parishioners back into the building. It is possible that we will not be able to welcome anyone into Holy Family church until the end of June. If this changes, you can be sure that we will communicate our entire re-entry plan. After almost three months in isolation, there are many signs of hope for all of us. We pray that the Lord will keep all of us safe from contagion, and help us to speedily have in place all that we need to welcome friends ‘home’ to our worship space. 

Devotedly yours in the Lord,

Fr. Bob Remark,

Pastor
