Requirement of facemasks while at church

We remind CCC members that facemasks are required throughout the diocese while at mass. We are guests at local diocesan parishes who graciously host and help us and we ask that all be resepctful of this diocesan policy and observe this regulation. Thank you much for your cooperation. If it is felt as a sacrifice, please know that it is only temporary and it unites you more intimately to the sacrifice of Christ, who made many unspeakable sacrifices to be united to you, and which same sacrifice is made present at every mass.

Special adjustments for November 2020 All Souls Plenary Indulgences

With the power of the keys to loose the kingdom of heaven upon earth, Holy Mother Church grants a plenary indulgence, that is the complete remission of all temporal punishment due to sin,  all this week (Nov. 1-8), by the particular work of visiting a cemetery and praying for the faithful departed. This particular plenary indulgence is  only applicable to the poor souls (not to one self). 

This year, 2020, due to restrictions in churches throughout the world, the Sacred Penitentiary of the Vatican has decreed that the 8 indulgences can be gained throughout the whole month of November. Only 8 in total may be gained, but the 8 opportunities are now extended through all of November and not limited to just the Nov 1-8 period. Read more here.
One may also gain a plenary indulgence on Nov 2, by visiting a Church and reciting an Our Father and Creed. 

All are invited to visit Palm Royale Cemetery on Vanderbilt Beach Rd. before or after our daily evening Masses throughout the month.  Read more about this special opportunity and the accompanying conditions. Besides the Rosary, Chaplet, etc. other indulgenced prayers for the fatihful departed may be found in the Church's Raccolta (c.f. pg. 160 et seq)

Special opportunity for building fund donations

From a Financial Advisor of our community:     
 
      Any Individual Retirement Account holder aged 70 ½ or older may make a contribution directly from a traditional IRA to a qualified 501(c)(3) charity of up to $100,000 without it being considered a taxable distribution.

      The CARES Act, signed into law March 27, 2020, enables any taxpayer with a Mandatory Retirement Distribution due in 2020 from their Retirement Plan to skip their MRDs this year.

     This is a great and most effective way for parishioners over age 70 ½ to make their 2020 donation to our Corpus Christi Chapel Building Fund.      

      If you wish to learn more about QCDs, don’t hesitate to ask Father Romanoski or Father Dorsa. 

More information regarding your building fund and goals toward your future parish home can be seen here
