Our Lady of Fatima and the Rosary as a Weapon for Peace

08-20-2017Fr. Michael Straley


On Monday we begin a diocesan wide Novena to Our Lady in the year of the 100th anniversary of her appearing to the three children at Fatima, Portugal. Bishop Olmsted has asked us all to pray the Rosary daily during this Novena. He especially called on parents to pray the Rosary as a family. On October 13, the 100th anniversary of the final apparition at Fatima, Bishop Olmsted will publicly consecrate our Diocese to Mary’s Immaculate Heart. The Novena, beginning August 21 on the Feast of the Queenship of Mary, will conclude on October 13.
