This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Fatima apparitions. Here at Assumption, we will be celebrating the anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions by inviting you to pray, to read, and even to travel to the holy shrines of Portugal and Spain.
Below are links to our Fatima events and resources. We pray that all our parishioners will join us in our recognition of this very special year, and will grow in their own knowledge and love of the Blessed Virgin Mary, for whom our Parish is named.
