Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha of the Fall River Diocese.

On his blog, entitled “Building Faith,” Bishop da Cunha intends to share his experiences and reflections as he travels around the diocese and sometimes beyond carrying out his responsibilities. He began the blog back in October.

“It is my desire to utilize this weekly blog to build community within our diocese, strengthen our faith and share the many activities a Bishop is blessed to participate in” the bishop said in his first post.

Da Cunha added the blog is “a wonderful way to celebrate my fifth year as Bishop of Fall River.”

The blog can be accessed through the diocesan website at www.fallriverdiocese/bishops-blog/

The launching of the blog is one of the initial actions to emerge from the diocesan Rebuilding in Faith and Hope initiative. The initiative brought together nearly 400 persons meeting over several months last year to study and offer planning recommendations designed to strengthen areas of diocesan administration, ministries and services.
