Members of the Fall River Diocese are invited to join Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., in the annual Procession and Mass for Peace on the Columbus Day holiday. Participants in the procession should meet by 5:30 p.m. in the area of St. Anne’s Shrine, across from Kennedy Park on South Main Street in Fall River, to march approximately one-half mile to St. Mary’s Cathedral. The procession will begin at 6 p.m. Marchers will carry candles, recite the rosary, and sing Marian hymns.
Upon arrival of the procession at St. Mary’s Cathedral, located at the corner of Second and Spring Streets, Bishop da Cunha will celebrate the Mass for Peace. The bishop will be homilist at the liturgy as well.
Those who are handicapped or disabled should proceed directly to the Cathedral, where a special area will be designated for them.
