Summary:
Parishioners and their families practice how they will protect themselves and their loved ones if they are in church during an earthquake.


Full Description:
The parishioners of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church Chino Hills will conduct their 2nd annual ShakeOut Drop, Cover, and Hold On! exercise at the conclusion of all 8 weekend masses (after the final blessing):
Saturday 5pm (Youth), Saturday 7pm (Spanish), Sunday 7am, 9am, 11am, 1pm, 5pm, and 7pm. The ShakeOut audio is played while the Drop, Cover and Hold On! ShakeOut graphic is displayed on the projection screens.

We don't want anyone to disrupt the solemnity of the mass which is why the drill is conducted after the final blessing. Yet we do want to encourage all FBOs to take an active role in preparing their congregations to properly respond to and recover from disasters.
