Covid-19 update

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 May 29, 2021, Governor Baker has re-opened the state with certain restrictions . On June 15, 2021 the Governor declared that the State of Emergency is officially over. The protocols are now allowing larger occupancy limits for indoor gatherings and masks are only required in specific situations.

UPDATE:  As of 8 AM Saturday, March 5, 2022, Mayor Michelle Wu and the Boston Public Health Commission has lifted the indoor mask mandate for most public businesses.

Please know that we are following this situation as it unfolds. It is our intention to assist our families with respect, dignity & honor. We will follow any requests that families may have in respect to the wearing of masks or social distancing as well as restricting occupancy for their comfort. We kindly ask all visitors to the funeral home respect the family requests. 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.
