Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Mark 10:14
At Saints Anthony of Padua Parish, Mattapoisett and Saint Rita of Cascia Parish, Marion, we all work together to protect our children. If you, or anyone you know, have suffered abuse by a priest or someone affiliated with the Diocese of Fall River, we urge you to call our Victim Assistance Coordinator at 508-985-6508. 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.
