On behalf of the Diocesan Parish Pastoral Task Force, a survey has been designed to gather your thoughts about our Parish. The Task Force believes it is important to hear from parishioners in order to better understand your perspective on the life of our parish. The results of the survey will help to stimulate thinking as to how pastors and the larger Diocese can better minister to the needs of the Diocese in the future. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey which may be found here. Please read Fr Joe’s letter explaining the process by clicking here. Thank you in advance for your input and support!
[Please note that each member of the family may complete a separate survey.]
Catholic Charities Appeal - 2016 Underway
The Fall River & New Bedford Deaneries version of the 2016 Catholic Charities Appeal in the Diocese of Fall River, Massachusetts. Touching interviews with people whose lives have been positively impacted by the services provided by Catholic Charities. Scenes were videotaped at homeless shelters, food pantries, transitional housing units, substance-free apartment buildings, marriage preparation classes, youth ministry services, the television Mass, hospitals, CYO basketball games, ESL classes, and many other locations. Last year the Catholic Charities Appeal helped to change the lives of tens of thousands of individuals and families stretching from Mansfield, Easton and the Attleboros, through the Taunton, Fall River and New Bedford areas, and extending all the way to Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. 94 cents of every dollar donated last year went directly to service our less fortunate neighbors and friends in the Fall River Diocese.
