More than 2000 faithful Christians with parish priests participate in the annual candlelight procession and Saint Anne’s Mass for peace on Columbus day. Previous years, marchers met 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 begins at 6:00 p.m. Marchers with Diocesan Bishop da Cunha 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. Those who are disabled or handicapped should proceed directly to St. Anne’s Church, where a special area near the baptismal font will be designated for them. The Procession and Mass for Peace has been held annually in the diocese since 1975.
