Q: How do I receive offertory envelopes?
A: Having offertory envelopes is a good idea, for several reasons:
- They are pre-printed and mailed directed to you.
- They allow our office to prepare an annual statement for tax purposes.
- As your donation at Mass is a “gift” to the community, your envelope serves as your donation’s “gift wrap.”
To receive envelopes for adults, simply contact the office. You can be given a temporary set on the spot. Then, every other month a two-month supply pre-printed will be sent to your home. Children’s envelopes can be obtained by picking them up in the church. Children’s donations are reflected in their parent’s record of giving.
Q: Can I make my gifts electronically?
A: Yes. We have an EFT program which enables you to make your donations using your checking or credit card accounts. You will first have to fill out a form in our EFT Form, and include a voided check if you want your donations deducted from a checking account. To obtain our EFT Form, you can call the Parish Office at (510) 471-2609, or stop by the office. If you bank electronically, you can also set up automatic transfers from your checking account by setting up the parish as a “bill” in your bank’s online bill pay system.
Q: How do I get married in the Church?
A: Visit the Marriage page for more information on how to get married at St. Anne. The sacrament of Marriage is celebrated either at 12:00 Noon or at 2:00pm on Saturdays. Weddings are discouraged during Lent.
Q: How do I celebrate Quinceañera?
A: A Quinceañera is when a young woman makes a personal commitment before the parish community to follow God at the time of her 15th birthday. To schedule a Quinceañera, the young woman should contact our Quinceañera Coordinator. The best way to do this is to hold a meeting right after the Spanish Masses on Sundays.

- Meetings and functions of various community non-profit organizations.
