FALL RIVER — Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V, will celebrate the Fall River Diocesan Television Mass on Easter Sunday, April 12, at a special time. The TV Mass on Easter will expand to a full hour and will be aired from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on WLNE-TV, Channel 6.

“With the suspension of public Masses amid this coronavirus pandemic, our diocesan Television Mass provides a critical service in bringing the Word of God and the prayers of the Mass to the Catholic faithful throughout the Fall River Diocese and beyond,” said Bishop da Cunha. “This will be especially true for this Sunday, Easter Sunday, the greatest and most joyful feast of the entire Church year.”

Easter is the celebration of Jesus Christ’s Resurrection from the dead.
