Catholic Communication Campaign Collection
This yearly national campaign is designed as a shared collection, meaning half of the proceeds stay in the local diocese and the other half is forwarded to the Catholic Communication Campaign office of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference.
The portion remaining in the Fall River Diocese is used to fund the weekly Television Mass, which airs at 11 a.m. each Sunday on WLNE-TV, channel 6. On the air since 1963, the Diocesan Television Mass has been a source of spiritual sustenance and support for countless numbers of area Catholics.
The annual cost for the Television Mass averages nearly $108,000 including production, airtime and closed-captioning –all of which are handled by different entities. (In addition to proceeds from this weekend’s CCC collection, the Television Mass is also supported by the Catholic Charities Appeal.)
At the national level, the CCC helps the Church spread the Gospel message through television, radio, print, social networks and the Internet by the U.S. Bishops’ Conference staff and other grantee organizations.
