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):

"Let the children come to me;
do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." ~ Mark 10:14

At Santo Christo Parish, we all work together to protect our children. Please visit the Diocesan Safe Environment page for information on how we protect the faithful, and the steps involved to minister, work, or volunteer in the Fall River Diocese:
