In The News
Society helps those in need
Before the news of the closing of St. Anne’s church was announced, the parish was faced with another challenge. Earlier this fall, somebody stole funds from the church’s food pantry donation cash box.
When word reached the Prince Henry Society of Fall River, the Humanitarian and Relief Committee responded with a request to the members for a donation. The members approved a donation which exceeded the amount lost.
The check was presented on October 13 by committee chairs Joe Borges and Michelle Orlando, Society president Bob Medeiros and other members.
Next Meeting: December 5
