Falmouth brunch to support Catholic school scholarship fund


FALMOUTH, Mass. — Once again, supporters of Catholic education are invited to enjoy a winter brunch on Cape Cod, complete with food and festivities while at the same time assisting Catholic school students in the Fall River Diocese.

The 13th annual Foundation to Advance Catholic Education, Inc., winter brunch will be hosted by Bishop of Fall River Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V.  

The event will take place on Sunday, February 4, at the Coonamessett Inn of Falmouth. Proceeds from the event benefit FACE, which provides need-based scholarships to children attending Catholic schools on Cape Cod and throughout southeastern Massachusetts.

Mary and Larry McGrath, Esq. are serving as co-chairs for this year’s event and with their committee are planning an afternoon of delicious food, children’s entertainment and merriment.

Beginning at 11:30 a.m., the festivities will include an award-winning Sunday brunch buffet, silent auction and a fun filled raffle with fantastic prizes.

In his letter of invitation to the winter brunch, Bishop da Cunha noted the diocese’s Catholic schools are committed to academic excellence: 

“Knowing your ongoing support and the current trajectory of our Catholic schools, I am so hopeful for the future of Catholic education in the Diocese of Fall River.  

“I am so appreciative to the many generous and dedicated people who have given their time, shared their talents, and supported us with their resources to make our schools vibrant for the future,” wrote the bishop.

The FACE winter brunch offers a great opportunity to help support Catholic education in the Fall River Diocese.
