Chad Berlinghieri, artistic director of Cathedral Productions, wishes to thank our city for their participation in serving those that are in need. With our desire to promote the welfare of others, Cathedral Productions very much believes in giving back to the communities in which we work.

Through winter of 2018-2019 with the support of our partners (Seal Beach Knights of Columbus, Downey Rotary, Risher Mortuary, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Sisters of St. Clare, St. Pius Matthias, St. Columban’s, Coast to Coast, TLC, Tamar Ministries, and Catholic Worker Isaiah House) CP has shipped and distributed over 1,700 Isaiah House Blankets to the homeless of Southern California at the cost of $11,911.62.

We were also pleased to participate in the first ever Downey One Day of Service in which we donated one hundred fifty blankets to the City while receiving a certificate of Recognition from City Council member Alex Saab.

Over the last fourteen months it has been a pleasure for us to integrate into the greater Downey community and we definitely feel as though we have been received with open arms. We look forward to the many great things happening for all of us and sharing the gift of music together.

Sincerely,
Chad Berlinghieri
