Santo Christo Parish, Logo

Although public worship in the Diocese of Fall River has resumed, Bishop Da Cunha's dispensation from the obligation of assisting at Sunday Mass remains in effect. We will continue to live-stream daily Mass and weekend Masses on our Facebook page at SantoChristoParish. You are encouraged to participate prayerfully with your family, joining your hearts, minds, and voices to the priestly action of Christ in the liturgy as if you were physically present.  Please pray for an end to this coronavirus pandemic.

PROTECTION OF CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE
"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,

Catechists

Faith Formation (Religious Education)

For the young people in our community, this catechetical program is intended to culminate with the Eucharist. Faith Formation centers, firstly, on divine worship at Sunday Mass and then on religious instruction by volunteer catechists from our parish. We help parents in their responsibility as the primary teachers of their children's faith by encouraging participation in:
 
   Sacred Liturgy  •  Faith Sharing  •  Prayer  •  Community Service

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and Adult Confirmation

If you are an unbaptized adult or a baptized non-Catholic, and are interested in becoming Catholic,
we invite you to enroll in RCIA, a process of learning about and being formed in the Catholic Faith.

RCIA classes begin in October and conclude just before Easter.

Unbaptized adults ("catechumens") are typically baptized, confirmed, and given their first
Holy Communion at the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday night.

For baptized non-Catholics, entrance into the Catholic Church involves sacramental confession and a
Profession of Faith prior to reception of Confirmation and Holy Communion, typically during the Easter Season.

Unconfirmed adult Catholics wishing to receive Confirmation should enroll in
our parish Adult Confirmation program, which, like RCIA, begins in October.
