Holy Family Commemorates the Sixth Apparition

October 13, 2017

Friday, October 13, 6:30 pm Mass at St. Mary Church
Candlelight Rosary Procession to Follow

Do you have a devotion to Our Blessed Mother? The Miracle of the Sun, the culmination of Mary’s visit to the children was on October 13, 1917.  More than 70,000 people were in attendance, reporters and photographers included. Mary reaffirmed her request that the children pray the Rosary daily, and urge others to do the same. Then, the pouring rain that had turned the cove into a muddy mess suddenly stopped.

Pope Francis has granted a Plenary Indulgence on the anniversary dates of six apparitions which occurred in Fatima, Portugal from May – October in 1917.

One way to gain this indulgence is to pray devoutly before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima which has been solemnly exposed for veneration in any church, Adoration Chapel, or other proper place of prayer during the anniversary days of the apparitions. To learn more about how to obtain the indulgence pick up a flyer at the Sacred Heart Adoration Chapel, where a blessed statue of Our Lady of Fatima is solemnly exposed for the faithful to venerate, or visit: http://tinyurl.com/mtr2l73.
