Bishop Edgar da Cunha, S.D.V, Ordinary of the Diocese of Fall River, has graciously appointed Rev. Edward Murphy, Co-Pastor of St. Andrew the Apostle and Annunciation of the Lord parishes in Taunton, MA to assume additional responsibilities as Chaplain to the Preservation Society and St. Anne Shrine.
Fr. Murphy, known throughout the region for his healing ministries and deep devotion to the Blessed Mother, will continue to celebrate his Healing Masses on the third Thursday of each month, and in addition will provide spiritual guidance and support to the Society to ensure our efforts are directed in accordance with God’s Will as we expand our services and offerings to visitors and pilgrims to St. Anne’s.
The Preservation Society is deeply grateful to Bishop da Cunha for this appointment, thankful to Fr. Murphy in assuming this additional burden, and we look forward to an even deeper journey with Our Lord under the patronage of Good St. Anne.
