A Word of Thanks



Below is a letter from the Coptic Christians.  Please join us on Monday, May 1st at 9PM for a Mass celebrated by Fr. Wilson for the intentions of the Coptic Christians.


"Dear Fathers and Parishioners of St. Vincent de Paul and St. John the Evangelist, 

On behalf of the Holy Family Congregation, I would like to thank you for your prayers, love, kind thoughts, and support to us during this time.  The words and kindness of Fr. Wilson touched us all deeply. 

May God help us all to keep the faith as the martyrs do and may He unite us to His suffering that we may rejoice in rising with Him.


With prayerful gratitude,


-Fr. Shenouda Awad
Tuesday of Holy Week (April 11, 2017)"

Dispensation Granted for St. Patrick's Day


This year, the celebration of St. Patrick’s feast day on March 17th falls on a Friday during Lent.
 
In consideration of the culinary traditions of this feast and in response to a number of requests, Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., has granted to Catholics in the Fall River Diocese a dispensation from the Lenten rule of abstaining from meat on that day.
Catholics are asked to fast and practice abstinence in Lent as means of penance to unite in the suffering and death of Christ, and to prepare for His resurrection on Easter.  In granting the dispensation, Bishop da Cunha encourages those who choose to make use of it to carry out some other sacrificial act or work of charity in keeping with the spirit of the Lenten season.
