Joan Arc Synod Report
With Jesus on the Path of Faith and Hope
Thank you to all of you for your work, effort, and patience during this
synodal process. I am grateful to all of those who were able to attend the Closing Gathering on April 23rd and to all of you for submitting your parish's report.
I wanted to share some updates of where things are:
Members of the Diocesan Revitalization Committee are currently working through all the reports and collating them into the10 page report requested by the USCCB.
While this will require more time than originally thought, we hope to be able to share back a copy of the report to you by mid-June before submitting to the USCCB at the end of June.
The purpose of this survey is to serve as a final "catchall" for input before the Diocesan report is finalized.
Access the Synod Survey HERE.
Thank you again for all that you have and continue to do for our parishes.

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.
There are no upcoming scheduled events.
"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/
