GREAT NEWS!!!  The pandemic restrictions have been lifted, we have returned to 100% capacity, and Bishop da Cunha has lifted his dispensation, so Catholics are obligated to attend Sunday Mass.  (For the Bishop's full letter, please click here.)  The obligation does not apply to those who are ill; those who have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or any other communicable illness; those confined to their homes or to hospitals or other facilities due to illness, infirmity, frailty, or age; and those who are not yet able to be vaccinated, due to age or any health consideration. 

2021 Annual Catholic Appeal  •  Apelo Anual Católico

The theme for 2021 is “Time to Gather, Time to Heal, Time to Love.” Since 1942, the Catholic Appeal has helped people in all phases of life – from children, to youth, to parents, to the elderly. Your support sustains the numerous agencies, programs, and ministries of the Diocese of Fall River providing food and shelter, educating children and adults, and meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of thousands. We encourage you to support the Appeal as generously as you can. The campaign runs from May 1 - June 30.

Once again, the Diocese has an incentive program, providing a monetary award for parishes who meet a specific fundraising goal, including our own - to raise 5% more than the average of the last three years.  The average of the contributions from Santo Christo Parish from 2018-2020 is $26,468.  With the goal of a 5% increase, our parish goal for 2021 is $27,791.40.  If we surpass our parish goal, Santo Christo Parish will receive 50¢ on every dollar raised over that amount.  Any money raised would go to our Church Renovation Fund.  Last year, in 2020, we raised $29,643.
