Mary Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal six times in 1917, every 13th of the month, May to October. We are entrusted to Our Lady of Fatima as patron saint of our parish.

Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Lakewood, Colorado is a dedicated pilgrimage site for the Fatima Pilgrimage Year, October 23, 2016 to October 29, 2017. We welcome all pilgrims through our Holy Door.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Our Lady's appearances in Fatima, our parish has embarked on a journey of prayer, fellowship and learning. We desire to follow Jesus, and his mother Mary is showing us the way.

 

Pray the Rosary

On May 1, 2015 we began a campaign to say one million rosaries. We are proud to announce that our goal has been reached and surpassed. The tally is now 1,126,069.

Please tally your rosaries for this campaign to now reach two million by the closing of this pilgrimage year, October 29, 2017.
