UPDATED AUGUST 9, 2021: As you know, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a change to its mask-wearing guidance and now advises that fully vaccinated persons wear a mask in indoor public places, in areas of the country with “substantial and high” transmission of COVID-19. Because all of the territory of the Fall River Diocese lies in these areas, the Diocese is strongly encouraging all parishioners to follow the CDC guidance and wear a mask while attending Mass or other liturgical celebrations. This is particularly important for anyone with a weakened immune system, or at risk because of age or underlying medical condition, or someone who is unvaccinated. The recent uptick in virus transmission is a reminder that the pandemic has not yet passed, and continued vigilance is required. Thank you for your collective commitment to the overall good and health of the parish community.
Once again, the Diocese has an incentive program, providing a monetary award for parishes who meet a specific fundraising goal, including our own - to raise 5% more than the average of the last three years. The average of the contributions from Santo Christo Parish from 2018-2020 is $26,468. With the goal of a 5% increase, our parish goal for 2021 is $27,791.40. If we surpass our parish goal, Santo Christo Parish will receive 50¢ on every dollar raised over that amount. Any money raised would go to our Church Renovation Fund. Last year, in 2020, we raised $29,643.
