The sermons before a packed house of worship are a distant memory. Before the COVID-19 outbreak closed churches, it looked much different.
Churches are empty, with no one coming in to worship. That means the collection plate hasn’t been passed around. Financially, many Southern California Churches are hurting.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Oxnard is one example. It’s closed its school and sanctuary. Money isn’t coming in, but the bills still have to be paid.
