Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., celebrated a special Mass for the May 1 Feast of St. Joseph the Worker as part of the Fall River Diocesan observance of the Year of St. Joseph. In the context of the Mass, the Bishop lead the diocesan faithful, both those attending in-person and those participating virtually via its livestream, in the Consecration prayer to St. Joseph.

The setting for the Mass is St. Joseph Chapel in Woods Hole. Dedicated in 1882, the chapel is the oldest Catholic worship site on Cape Cod still in existence and the only one placed under the patronage of St. Joseph in that region. St. Joseph Chapel is part of the Catholic Community of Falmouth Collaborative.
