Talk and Candlelight Procession on July 13th

Discover and live the life of Fatima! Join us on Thursday, July 13th at 7:30 pm for a special talk and a candlelight by Fr. Richard Heilman on the July 13th Apparition of Our Lady.

After the talk we will have a candlelight procession along Chicago Avenue to Holy Innocents Church (743 N. Armour St).

The July 13th apparition is perhaps the most attention-getting moment for the three Fatima children and for us so far.  Come hear Fr. Richard Heilman speak about this profound apparition and its meaning for our lives—Does behavior have consequences? How can you find fulfillment & joy?

As we walk the 3/4 of a mile to Holy Innocents Church we will pray the Rosary in both English and Spanish led by Fr. Juan Arrieta, praying for peace and conversion in our city.

Discover and live the life of Fatima! The July 13th event is the third of a six-part series of presentations from May to October 2017 commemorating the apparitions.

The events are sponsored by the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA and Relevant Radio.

Pope Francis has granted to the faithful a special Plenary Indulgence for taking part in the Centennial Celebrations on the 13th of each month.

This year as we observe the 100th Anniversary of such a significant moment in history, we welcome all, Catholic and non-Catholic alike to come and experience the meaning of the message of Fatima.
