| Voice collection is next month
Parishes will accept donations for the annual collection to support the publication of The Catholic Voice, El Heraldo Católico, the annual Diocesan Directory and affiliated websites.
Collection envelopes are usually distributed in October. The official weekend for this second collection was set by the diocese as Oct. 4-5, though individual parishes can change the date.
The money donated in each collection remains in each parish to offset the parish's support for The Voice and affiliated operations. Make the checks payable to your parish.
The Voice publishes 21 issues a year and is delivered to 90,000 Catholic households — about half of all Catholic households — in the Oakland diocese. El Heraldo Católico is available monthly at all parishes where Mass is said in Spanish.
Every registered Catholic household is entitled to receive The Voice as part of belonging to a parish. It is the bishop's primary method of communicating with the people, and the primary method people of the diocese know about each other and their Catholic faith. The newspaper is also available online at www.catholicvoiceoakland.org as is an online subscription.
If you are not receiving The Catholic Voice and would like to, please contact your parish or The Voice at 510-893-5339 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
