Mass of Atonement, Prayer and Penance
April 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Fall River Diocese will offer this special Mass of Atonement, Prayer and Penance as part of its commemoration of Child Abuse Prevention Month in April. Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., will be the principal celebrant and homilist at the Mass, which will include special intentions for the victims of sexual abuse. All are welcome to attend.
Every April, child- and youth-serving organizations — including many Catholic dioceses, parishes, and schools — participate in National Child Abuse Prevention Month to highlight the importance of protecting minors from abuse. These efforts are part of the ongoing work of dioceses across the country to carry out the U.S. bishops’ “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.”
