What’s Happening


Plenary Indulgence of the Jubilee of Our Lady of Fatima

A plenary indulgence of the jubilee is granted to the pious faithful who visit with devotion an image of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly displayed for public veneration in any temple, oratory or adequate place, during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions (the 13th of each month through to October 2017), and devotedly participate there in any celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary, pray the Our Father, recite the Symbol of Faith (Creed) and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.  So as to allow our parishioners to obtain the plenary indulgence, Fr. Barkett’s Our Lady of Fatima statue will be on display on the 13th of the month from June through October.
