2017 Appeal Results

The Annual Appeal is the one and only time the Diocese of Fall River asks it parishioners and friends to assist in meeting the needs of those it ministers to through its various agencies and apostolates. The fact that 94 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to ministering to those who approach these agencies and apostolates for assistance, is one of the benchmarks to which the Appeal measures itself and strives to maintain each and every year.
