Covid-19 update

On  July 6th, 2020 Massachusetts Governor Baker issued the Phase Three re-opening order limiting gatherings to 40 per cent of the approved occupancy limit for gathering of individuals. In keeping with the Governor Baker's directive in response COVID-19 (Coronavirus), all funeral services must be limited to that amount of attendees only.

To our families, friends, neighbors & guests

It has always been our goal to strive to make every funeral to be a meaningful & dignified experience for both our families & their loved ones. As we are encountering these very troubling times in the world with COVID- 19 (Coronavirus), we must follow specific orders from Governor Charles Baker, the Center for Disease Control, City of Boston Health Department as well as the Archdiocese of Boston and other Religious Denomination guides for Funeral Services. On Monday, July 6, Governor Baker eased some of the restrictions in Phase Three of the re-opening. On August 11, the protocols were tightened to previous occupancy limits of 25 persons for indoor gatherings. However, some restrictions still remains in place in the City of Boston.  Mayor Walsh now allows funeral gatherings to 25 person occupancy with restrictions in place as to face coverings and social distancing for all.

Please know that we are following this situation as it unfolds. It is our intention to assist our families with respect, dignity & honor our services. We kindly ask all visitors to the funeral home to pay their respects to the family and exit the building, allowing for others to do the same. This is not an easy time, but we must be vigilant & unified while supporting one another.

We strongly encourage you to share your condolences online by signing our online guestbooks.

Thank you for your understanding, please keep yourselves safe.
