FALL RIVER — The Fall River Diocese invites all to take part in the annual Procession and Mass for Peace on Monday, October 13, 2014, the Columbus Day holiday.

As in previous years, marchers will meet no later than 5:45 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral, corner of Spring and Second Streets, Fall River, to march approximately one-half mile to St. Anne’s Church.  The procession will begin at 6:00 p.m.  Marchers will carry candles, recite the rosary and sing Marian hymns in various languages.

At approximately 7 p.m. Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., will celebrate a Mass for Peace at St. Anne’s Church, which faces Kennedy Park at South Main and Middle Streets.

Those who are disabled or handicapped should proceed directly to St. Anne’s Church, where a special area will be designated for them.

The Procession and Mass for Peace has been held annually in the diocese since 1975.
