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.
