PLEASE WEAR A MASK AT MASS

An Advisory from the Diocese of Fall River
December 22, 2021

December 22, 2021

As the number of new daily COVID cases increases and concern over the Omicron variant grows, the Diocese of Fall River continues to strongly encourage all parishioners to wear a mask while attending Mass or any other liturgical celebration unless unable because of a medical condition or under the age of two. This is particularly important for anyone with a weakened immune system; anyone at risk for severe disease because of age or underlying medical condition; or anyone in a household with someone having these conditions or with someone who is unvaccinated.

This guidance is in accord with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health December 21, 2021, advisory that all residents, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home).

The recent surge in virus transmission is a clear indication that the pandemic has not passed, and continued vigilance is required. Parishioners are asked to please keep in mind the need for a collective commitment to the overall good of the parish community.

The Diocese of Fall River continues to monitor all Covid-19 advisories and orders by both the CDC and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and will amend diocesan guidelines and directives on an ongoing basis as needed.

The Diocese wants the celebration of this holy season of Christmas to be joyful and safe for all.

Pray the Rosary

of getting closer to God”.

The 10 Commandments of Serenity

Welcome to St. Joan of Arc, a Roman Catholic Church and member of the Diocese of Fall River.  We are located 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 charism 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 always welcome.  Please introduce yourselves to the priest or deacon after Mass or contact the parish office to register.  We urge you to become active members of our Parish Family.

"Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these,"  Mark 10:14

As St. Joan of Arc Parish, we all work together to protect our children.  Please visit the Diocesan Safe Environment page for information on how we protect the faithful, and the steps involved to minister, work, or volunteer in the Diocese.
