Mary Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal six times, every 13th of the month, May - October 1917. We are entrusted to Our Lady of Fatima as patron saint of our parish.
Pray the Rosary
Our Lady of Fatima asked the shepherd children to, "Say the rosary every day to obtain peace for the world." During the Fatima Centennial, our parish community set a goal to say one million rosaries. People from around the world have joined in prayer, and we have almost reached our goal!
Learn the Fatima Message
Our Lady of Fatima gave us 3 tasks to bring peace to our world:
1. Be sorry for what we've done wrong; put God first in our lives.
2. Pray the Rosary each day for peace.
3. Make sacrifices for sinners so they will know and love God.
FATIMA PILGRIMAGE YEAR
On October 23, 2016, Archbishop Aquila opened the Fatima Pilgrimage Year and consecrated the Holy Door at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Lakewood, Colorado. A plenary indulgence is attached to the Holy Door. Following the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady's apparitions, the Pilgrimage Year will end and the Holy Door will close on October 29, 2017.
We invite you to learn more about making a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Fatima Parish and the plenary indulgence.
Parish Pioneer Project
To celebrate the Fatima Centennial we asked “parish pioneers” what it has meant to be members of the parish with our Blessed Mother as the patroness. They shared beautiful stories of events and people that impacted their faith life, as well as histories of our parish ministries. Throughout the year, we will feature their stories. To see the full collection, go to Our Stories page.
