CCHS May 4 Order Executive Summary

Everyone coming in to Church to pray is required to wear a mask and keep at least 6 feet of distance from others. Also remember to wash your hands frequently.

PARISH FINANCIALS: Due to the Health Department restriction against public Masses during this Covid-19 crisis, donations have dropped dramatically. We have a SIGNIFICANT SHORTFALL in what we need to pay the monthly bills, in spite of reducing expenditures everywhere we could and the very difficult and sad decision to reduce our Lay staff.

For those who can afford to, you can still mail in your donations to the church or drop them in the white drop-box outside the Parish Office. Better yet, consider donating electronically via our Faith Direct website at https://membership.faithdirect.net/CA762 - you can also text a donation to us. Text $ amount to 925-204-2211 and follow the link to complete a one-time registration. God Bless You!

Thank you to all who continue to support our parish through your donations.
