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 year-round and resort community on the lower Cape in southeastern Massachusetts, near the elbow of Cape Cod.

2022 Annual Appeal
“Journeying Together in Faith and Love” - The 81st Annual Catholic Appeal has begun and runs through June 30. Since 1942, the Appeal has helped people in all phases of life – from children to youth, to parents, to the elderly. Your support sustains the numerous agencies, programs, and ministries providing food and shelter, educating children and adults, and meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of thousands. We encourage you to support the Appeal as generously as you can. You can make a one-time gift or a pledge with convenient payments throughout the year. You can give by mail, use a contribution card located in the church, or make your gift or pledge online at: www.GiveFRDiocese.org.
"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. www.fallriverdiocese.org/office-of-safe-environment/
