We will celebrate with a Rosary and Holy Mass at 11 a.m. followed by a procession to the Fatima Grotto on the South lawn of the rectory where the statue of Mary will be crowned. The year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal.
