Our Lady of Fatima Home Statue


On 4th April 2019 we had a wonderful celebration for the centenary of the holy death of St Francisco Marto, one of the little shepherds of Fatima. Our Lady appeared to Francisco, his sister Jacinta and their cousin Lucia in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal with specific requests. These included the daily family recitation of The Rosary to pray for peace in our homes and peace in the world; the First Five Saturday Devotions; consecrating ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and wearing the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel as a sign of our consecration.

We have in the Parish a portable statue of the Pilgrim Virgin, Our Lady of Fatima, from the World Apostolate of Fatima. It comes with a special blessing to visit parishioner's homes throughout the year. Please sign up to take her into your home for a week, to entrust to her loving care all the joys and sorrows and the ups and downs of life, for special intentions as well as to pray for peace in the world. Let us resolve to pray her Rosary faithfully every day for a week, meditating on the divine mysteries of her Son, as she requested at Fatima, so that we may deserve to experience Our Lady's powerful and consoling help in our lives.

The statue will be accompanied with a "Book of Intentions" and a Prayer Booklet which has the Holy Rosary and a "Family Consecration To The Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary". You will find available in the Narthex a rota to enable you to sign up to take Our Lady of Fatima's statue into your home.
