FALL RIVER — The annual Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) collection will be taken up at parishes in the Fall River Diocese during the weekend of January 15 and 16.
This yearly national campaign is designed as a shared collection, meaning half of the proceeds stay in the local diocese and the other half is forwarded to the Catholic Communication Campaign office of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference.
The portion remaining in the Fall River Diocese provides partial funding for a variety of communication endeavors including the weekly Mass that airs on WLNE-TV, Channel 6.
The Diocesan Television Mass is broadcast on WLNE-TV, Channel 6, on Sunday at 11 a.m. The Fall River Diocese covers production, airtime and closed-captioning costs.
In addition to proceeds from the upcoming CCC collection, communication endeavors in the Diocese including the Television Mass are also supported by the annual Catholic Appeal.
At the national level, the CCC helps the Church spread the Gospel message through television, radio, print, social networks and the Internet by the U.S. Bishops’ Conference staff and other grantee organizations here in the U.S. and abroad.
