Temporary suspension of all public worship services in Anglican churches in Ontario

In consultation with the Anglican bishops in Ontario, The Most Reverend Anne Germond, Metropolitan of Ontario, recommended late Friday night the temporary suspension of all public worship services, effective Sunday, March 15.

“Gathering as a people of faith is important but God also summons us to seek the welfare of the cities in which we live and move and have our being”, says the Metropolitan, calling the measure “extraordinary” but ” consistent with the measures put in place by other civic institutions within our province, in an effort to impede the transmission of the coronavirus from person to person.”
