UPDATED JANUARY 8, 2022: Following the recommendations of the CDC, the Fall River Diocese continues to strongly encourage all parishioners to wear a mask while attending Mass or other liturgical celebrations. This is particularly important for anyone with a weakened immune system, or at risk because of age or underlying medical condition, or someone who is unvaccinated. With the rapid spread of the current Omicron variant, we must do all that we can to help protect one another and keep each other safe and healthy. Thank you for your collective commitment to the overall good of the parish community.  

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE INCREASE OF POSITIVE CORONAVIRUS CASES, ALL FAITH FORMATION CLASSES ARE CANCELED FOR SUNDAY, JANUARY 9!

BISHOP’S PASTORAL LETTER


Bishop da Cunha issued his 4th pastoral letter: Journeying Together: With Jesus on the Path of Faith & Hope. The Bishop shares “God is calling us to move forward and not stand still. My hope in this pastoral letter is to offer you a vision for how we can do this and how you can join us in moving forward into the future as a Diocese.” The letter focuses on three areas: Invitational Witness, Sacramental Living, and Vocational Pathways with each section offering mission steps - the actions that individuals, parish communities, and diocesan ministries need to take to make the vision a reality in the next 4 years. Please take an opportunity to review the letter at the diocesan website (written in English, Portuguese or Spanish):
