Our Novena, in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary final appearance to the children of Fatima, continues through October 13th. Pray with us.

posted Oct 2 2017 10:30 AM

Tomorrow begins a special prayer during our usual PA prayer time. We are beginning a novena (see definition below) to honor the 100th anniversary of the final appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal. To read more about the children and 6 apparitions of Mary, follow this link….


Trust me…it’s an amazing story and worth the read. I am attaching the prayer our prayer leaders will use for the next 9 school days. There will be a moment of silence for us to lift us a special intention that we would like the Blessed Virgin Mary to pray for and intercede on our behalf. Perhaps you would like to pray this at home. All theology classes will be watching "The 13th Day", a history of what happened in Fatima,  between now and October 13.

If you have any questions or need additional resources, please let me know

Novena= a period of 9 consecutive days or one day for 9 consecutive weeks in which a person prays according to a certain formula. Usually these prayers are for a particular intention or in honor of a particular saint or to highlight a mystery in Christ’s life.
