61 Canal Road
Orleans, MA 02653

Welcome to St. Joan of Arc, a Roman Catholic church and member of the Diocese of Fall River.  We are situated in Orleans, Massachusetts.  Orleans is a resort community on the outer Cape in southeastern Massachusetts, at the elbow of Cape Cod.  The church consists of 1100 families of many nationalities and all ages.

We are a faith-filled community and this is a joy!  The wonderful spirit of generosity and hospitality of our parish is a constant beacon of welcome for all who seek the warm embrace of solace and friendship.  This is a special charisma which continually strengthens and inspires us.

Both the upper church and the church hall are handicap accessible.

Please take time to peruse our web site.  Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.

New Parishioners are welcome.  Please introduce yourselves to the priest after Mass or call the office to register.  We urge you to become active members of our Parish Family.




The following opportunities are available during Lent:

The Light of Christ’s Love “It is Love alone that gives worth to all things” ~ Teresa of Avila. Standing at the foot of the Cross, we reflect and pray the Gospel Message of Christ’s Love. Join Judy Burt Walker at 8:45 a.m. in the Parish Center each Wednesday morning during March for reflection and stillness.

Stations of the Cross & Soup Supper  Join us this Friday, March 24, at 5 p.m. for Stations of the Cross  in  the Church, followed  by a  Lenten Soup Supper in the Parish Center.

Daily Reflections for Lent Copies of the reflection booklet, Not by Bread Alone, are available in the church foyers.


CRS Rice Bowls, available in all foyers, provide a vehicle through which our prayers and Lenten sacrifices can change the lives of those in need around the world. At the close of Lent, please forward your check directly to Catholic Relief Services
