Annual Collection

Catholic parishioners are the principal source of CCHD’s funds. The CCHD collection is held annually on the weekend before Thanksgiving.

 

To ensure the successful collection of funds in the diocese, you can help by doing the following:

  • Explain CCHD to members of your parish and urge them to give generously.
  • Make sure the promotion materials and envelopes are distributed.
  • Invite a member of the parish social justice committee or a representative of a funded group to speak for 3-5 minutes at the Sunday masses in order to tell the story of CCHD.
  • We can assist you in promoting the collection in your parish or answer any questions about CCHD. Simply email us at cchd@dioceseofjoliet.org. Be sure to include your contact information, including phone and mailing address.

Materials for the collection are available from the national CCHD site.
