100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions

 The Year of Fatima officially began on Nov. 27, 2016 and will continue through Nov. 26, 2017. On May 13, 1917 Our Blessed Mother appeared to the three shepherd children of Fatima (Lucia, Francisco &  Jacinta) for the first time and appeared to them consecutivelly  for six months bringing a  message of prayer, conversion and reaparation. As a tender Mother she beckons us to  turn back to God and reveals to us Her Immaculate Heart, full of love and mercy for her children.


      The Twentieth and Twenty-First Century have been indelibly marked by “the Lady of the Holm-Oak” who appeared to three young, humble shepherd children with a message of hope.  To this day the Shrine to Our Lady of Fatima thrives with pilgrims year-round.  

      It is said that the times in which we are living is the “Age of Mary”. In this “last hour” of human history, Heaven’s Queen has bent down to lowly earth to plead for her children “that all may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth,” that is, that we may turn our hearts once again to God and to faith in Jesus Christ.
