Our Lady of Fatima Celebrations

 

We will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the visitation of Our Lady at Fatima on August 19, 2017.

The Pope has offered plenary indulgences with three options. The option we have chosen includes praying before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima between May 9 and May15. This option applies to “the pious faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October (2017), and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary.”

Those seeking an indulgence must also pray an Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.

In celebration of the 100th year anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, the Legion of Mary will be hosting a 24-hour perpetual rosary on Saturday, August 19, 2017, to pray for peace in our world as the Blessed Mother has requested. Please help us to accomplish this goal by signing up for a time slot to pray the rosary. It can be recited at home or wherever convenient. There is a sign-up available online at the St. Mary Website.

We will be leading a general rosary and prayer in the church on Saturday, August 19, at 8 am and 4pm to fulfill the requirement for plenary indulgences.

We thank you for your help with this effort. Legion of Mary
