Public worship in the Diocese of Fall River will resume on Saturday, May 30th, the Vigil of the Solemnity of Pentecost. 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 devotions 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 sacred liturgy as if you were physically present.

 Youth Group

 We strive to lead our youth to a deeper relationship with the Lord while helping them gain a fuller knowledge of what it means to serve one another, the parish, and the community at large. The Youth Group is the core of this ministry, by which young people participate in spiritual, social, and service activities. We invite all youth in our parish in grades 6–12 to get involved.

St. Vincent de Paul Society

 Supported and funded primarily by our parishioners, our parish St. Vincent de Paul Society is part of a worldwide society dedicated to helping the needy. Its members—lay men and women—live out their faith by visiting people in their homes to provide support, friendship, and material assistance throughout the year. If you are in need of assistance, contact the parish office and we will have a member of the Society contact you.

Holy Rosary Sodality

 Members commit themselves to praying the Rosary daily, interceding for the spiritual and temporal needs of our parish family. They also visit the sick and support families or individuals through times of difficulty. Additionally, the Sodality offers our community its financial support by sponsoring various parish social events. The Rosary is prayed before daily Mass, and at 7pm Tuesdays in May and October (in the chapel).

Catholic Appeal
(formerly Catholic Charities Appeal) 

 The Diocese of Fall River conducts an annual springtime appeal, which supports many of its charitable services and activities. Throughout the year, these services touch the lives of tens of thousands, some young, others old; some sick in body, others in spirit; some broken, others confused with nowhere to turn. Without regard to race, creed, nationality, sex, or economic status, the various endeavors supported by the Catholic Appeal are motivated by the love of God and His command that we love one another.

United Interfaith Action

 United Interfaith Action (UIA) is an interfaith coalition of churches in the Fall River and New Bedford areas. Santo Christo Parish has been active in UIA since 1999. UIA promotes Christian social teaching, seeking justice for all and working to expand citizen participation in the American experiment. It has been successful in expanding after-school programs for children and preserving funding for job training programs for adults.
