Saint Mary’s Cathedral Mass for peace on Columbus day.

Mary_Rosary-3More than 2000 faithful Christians with parish priests participate in the annual candlelight procession and Saint Mary’s Cathedral Mass for peace on Columbus day. This years, marchers met 5:45 p.m. at St. Anne’s Church on Middle Street, Fall River, to march approximately one-half mile to St. Mary’s Cathedral on the Second Street. 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. Mary’s Cathedral. Those who are disabled or handicapped should proceed directly to St. Mary’s Cathedral, where a special area will be designated for them. The Procession and Mass for Peace has been held annually in the diocese since 1975.
